I am passionate about

Actions

(Within my community) Three years ago I co-founded a non profit organization dedicated to build an inclusive society where everyone understands the importance of mental health and acts on it. We do this in 4 ways: (1) "intervening" public spaces and involving society to creatively raise awareness on mental health; (2) advocating for de-stigmatization, equity and inclusion through social media; (3) engaging society and patients themselves and their communities in #StigmaFree conversations on mental health; (4) De-stigmatizing through art and culture. (Within my organization) As part of Backus' Sustainability Team, I've designed and implemented sustainable and innovate Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives: fostering capacity building, enhancing gender equity and promoting local economic development . A Communications for Development Specialist by training, I have built my experience around sustainable development, social entrepreneurship and external affairs.
