Having completed a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Literature and a Master’s degree in German Literature, I worked as a middle school teacher and as an adult educator for German. At the same time, I was finalizing my Federal Trainer Diploma. I then worked a couple of years as a social worker. Nevertheless, my predilection area being migration and integration, I started looking for an opening in the vast world of NGOs.
Luckily for me, I didn’t have to look for a long time. I’ve started working for the Swiss Refugee Council in January 2021 as a training co-manager in French-speaking Switzerland.
