I’m very excited about being the YSAFE Coordinator and I’m looking forward to learning even more about SRHR while contributing to the development of the YSAFE network. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Aarhus in Denmark. When studying Political Science I quickly found that I was mainly interested in foreign and development issues, especially in rights and culture differences. During my studies I became increasingly interested in gender rights and sexual rights, which lead me to become a volunteer in the Danish Family Planning Association. During my time with DFPA I was active in the debate-group planning events about LGBT-rights in Africa and transgendered rights in Denmark. For the last three years I have also been involved with DFPA’s participation in Copenhagen Pride.
