“This is my second year as a Master Degree student in Communication for Development, Malmö University. Living in Lusaka since last year, I also work with a non-profit media project, aiming at providing Zambian teenagers a platform to participate in the public debate. Therefore, we let them produce Zambia’s largest magazine –  The Junior Reporter. I have a background as an international relations professional at Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) and the Swedish National Audit Office.”
