he strategic representation of interests and stakeholder management in politics, administration and industry has been a key component of my career for many years. I gained experience in education-related and environmental NGOs, the European Parliament and in journalism during my degree time. I have also worked for various organisations related to politics. I started working as a public affairs consultant at Thierry Politikberatung in 2012, following stints at VKI – the Consumer Information Association, the union and the microcredit NGO Microfinance Focus in Bangalore (India). I then moved to communication matters in 2014. I also graduated as a Master of European Public Affairs at the German University Institute for Professional Studies, in addition to my studies in politics in Vienna and Tampere (Finland).
