What is your background?

Before joining SYHA I worked in International Development, mainly supporting youth volunteering and youth empowerment. Prior to this I spent a couple of years studying in Sweden and Chile conducting participatory research with farmers about climate variability which I loved; the perfect mix of people, nature and data. I also spent a few years exploring and working in Japan, which taught me a lot about how things can work so well, yet so differently.  

What inspires you?

Wild places, and the ability of nature to adapt so perfectly.

What is your perfect weekend?

Tent, family, mountains and a map (And a cosy pub nearby).

What is your favourite thing about Co:Create?

The diversity of the work we do and the way we work together and with others.

What’s your favourite movie?

Tricky question, but probably Goodnight and Good luck.
