Since the beginning of September, our team has two new members! Meet ESC volunteers Magdalena and Estefanía:
I´m Estefanía from Spain. In the next 12 months I’m going to work in the communication and campaign area of CATAPA. I have developed my studies in journalism and digital communication. About my career, it has been focused in the social sector: in recent years I had worked in a NGO to defend rights for migrant and refugees people, and also in the Cooperation and Volunteering area in Miguel Hernandez University.
The opportunity to be part of CATAPA is an incentive to develop my career close to my values. Being part of this project also gives me the opportunity to work with professionals from whom I can learn a lot.
About me, I like to practice CrossFit, hiking and relax watching The office. I also really like music and dancing, so count on me to party.
Hey everyone! I am Magdalena and I am the new movement and campaigning ESC volunteer! I am super excited to join Catapa and to get to know all of you!
A few things about me: I grew up in a valley in Austria, before moving to Vienna where I was active in the climate justice movement and studied environmental sciences and management of bioressources. The last few years I have been living in the Netherlands to do my MSc in Development and Rural Innovation there. I am interested in everything related to climate justice, intersectional environmentalism, just sustainability transitions, community currencies, degrowth and – of course – mining! In my free time I like to hike, go bouldering, knit and read.
I am already looking forward to meeting you in the next Catapa meetings!
ESC stands for European Solidarity Corps, a European exchange programme offering young people a volunteer experience abroad.
