External Action and Communications Intern

As part of my internship at Wetlands International Europe I am supporting the External Action programmes, in order to increase the role of wetlands in EU development plans. I also provide support to Communication activities.

I studied Biology in Venezuela, with a focus on Water Ecology. Afterwards, I worked for several years in a consumer goods company where I developed my experience in research and expanded it to project management and communications. I have always felt passionate about advocating for nature protection and for equality and justice. I am currently changing careers and started a Master’s in International Migration with a specialization in International Development to acquire the knowledge to be able to work in this field. I am especially interested in the intersection between climate change and migration.
