Rebecca Atoline

Position and Company: Immigrants Representative | Zürich Council
Country: Switzerland/Uganda

My favorite place:  Somewhere deep in the valleys of Zinal in Wallis Switzerland, Kaberamaido in Uganda
My favorite song: Do I have to really choose? Ok one of these: Greatest love or One moment in Time, Whitney Houston
My favorite book: The Bible, contains all that I need: poetry, romance, crime, intrigue, history, gossip, archaeology, motivation.

Three things I dislike:  Traffic jam! Suffering! And now something I really like: PEOPLE
My greatest adventure: Starting a journey without a destination, I still do it every summer holiday.
I think Europe’s biggest challenge is… too much structure, too much uncertainty avoidance, stifles creativity and affects flexibility, breeding a kind of resistance to winds of change.
My changemaker idol: Winnie Byanyima

My message to the EYA community:

“In a world where we have it all; where nobody really lacks anything: we need ‘solidarity’. Solidarity in thought and in action.”
