My name is Laure and this year I am the Project Coordinator of AFD Utrecht. As Project Coordinator, I will be responsible for the coordination and qualitative execution of all projects, thereby managing and balancing the interests of all stakeholders involved in the projects.
Recently I pursued a BSc in Liberal Arts and Sciences with a major in Cultural Anthropology and I plan on starting the MSc Sustainable Development ór Metropolitan Analysis, Design and Engineering next year. Before I start a new academic year, I want to combine and develop my academic knowledge and practical skills, and have social impact; thoughtful, tangible, well-founded impact. In a globalizing world of limited resources and unlimited ingenuity is really important to use our full potential and work together to bring topics related to social impact closer to a broader audience and to inspire and convince them of their capability to make a difference. This belief, together with my interest in international development and fascination with sustainability issues led to the decision to join AFD.
I am really looking forward to this year and I am extremely motivated to successfully coordinate this year’s projects and thus contribute to real sustainable development initiatives.
