With prior experience working in the United Kingdom, Finland, Australia and New Zealand, I have spent the past 2.5 years in an instrumental role at the Bianca Jagger Human Rights Foundation in London. Working closely with the Chief Executive, my accomplishments included but were not limited to drafting key reports, articles and speeches on topics covering human rights, climate change, and sustainable development that were published in media including The Huffington Post.
Other achievements included working on successful proposals including funding applications to the European Commission and the UN. I also participated in international conferences including UNFCCC and the IUCN Global Conservation Congress (Honolulu, 2016).
Having completed my early education in Finland, I relocated to Scotland where I achieved a first class degree in Law (2012). The following year, I received a scholarship to undertake a Master’s degree in Global Environment and Climate Change Law at the University of Edinburgh (2013).
My education and training focused on adopting an inter-disciplinary approach to problem solving, and in developing a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of different bodies of law and other disciplines. This has given me the confidence and ability to undertake a range of research, writing and policy work across various sectors.
