Believing in something brings you a lot closer to achieving it. If several people with ambition and insights believe in something, the chance that you will make it a reality is even greater. Peace SOS consists of a group of people who believe in peace, and being part of this is inspiring. With this work we try to show many more people how beautiful peace is and how beautiful it is to work towards this in a peaceful way, together, by opening yourself up to others and people who think differently. This takes away fears and offers new perspective. With a master’s degree in international politics, as general advisor of Peace SOS I look for a balance between organizational and substantive involvement in order to make the organization and its initiatives flourish. I am particularly interested in religion and peace, the underlying cause of conflict (poverty, natural resources) and the potential of research and journalism to promote tolerance.
