As a young, European citizen, I believe it should be the duty of every politician to deal with the two most important crises humanity is currently facing: climate change and inequality. None of these crises can be dealt with separately. The discontent of the Gilets Jaunes has been caused because the political establishment has refused to force those who have been mainly responsible for our environmental crisis to pay for it.

Educated in two languages by my parents, I’ve almost my whole life lived, studied and worked in Brussels. During my university years, I represented my faculty at the student council. In my capacity as student representative, I worked with representatives of the local community of international students. While studying, I also wrote and edited articles for the local student magazine. I love to spend my free time to practice theatre and read novels.
