Believing in something brings you closer to achieving it. If more people with ambition and insights believe in it, the chance that you will turn it into reality becomes bigger. Peace SOS consists of a group of people who believe in peace, it is inspiring to be part of it. With our work we try to show people the beauty of peace and the beauty of working on it in a peaceful manner, together, by opening up for others and people with other perspectives. That takes away fears and offers new perspectives.
With my master in international politics, as a secretary of Peace SOS I am seeking the balance between the organizational side and a focus on the content, to let Peace SOS and its initiatives flourish. I am interested most of all in religion and peace, the root causes of conflict (poverty, natural resources) and the use of research and journalism to stimulate tolerance.
