I grew up in Wales, around the west coast, seaside town of Aberystwyth, that is surrounded by luscious green hills and mountains. Due to my surroundings, I’ve always been aware of the importance of the environment and its protection. I studied Human Geography at University as I was interested in the relationship between humans, politics and the environment, and how these three things in turn affect each other.
I did not carry on working in this field and for the last 5 years I have been working in the world of Human Resources. Knowing that I have always wanted to work for the NGO and charity sector, I see this opportunity with YEE as a way for me to follow my passions. I believe that empowering young people to believe that change can start with them is really important and I am looking forward to learn how YEE engages young people in campaigns and how they work together with different organisations across Europe towards one goal.
I’m looking forward to learning how to set up campaigns and work on environmental projects during these 12 months. I hope I will also be able to explore the Czech Republic during my time here and even be able to speak Czech by the time I leave!
