My favorite place: I love to travel and met new people and places, but I think my favourite place of all is Spain because I enjoy learning Spanish and have many Spanish friends. Plus, of course, the food is amazing. My favorite song:  It’s impossible to say because my favourite song changes monthly. My favorite book:  How to choose?! Three of my favorites are One Hundred Years of Solitude, Everything is Illuminated, and Oryx and Crake.Three things I dislike: – Bad –isms like sexism, fascism, racism, etc. – Pollution – SnakesMy greatest adventure: Four years ago, I moved abroad alone, and it keeps leading me into new adventures. I think Europe’s biggest challenge is…having the sustained courage and energy to dialogue and problem solve together – and to not exclude, ignore, or silence anyone – despite pressures from the changing world. My changemaker idol: Eleanor RooseveltMy message to the EYA community:

“I am happy to be a member of the EYA community because of the positive energy and impactful ideas we create together!  :)”
