Meet Tenna – our new Fundraising and Project Officer at YEU.
Being born and raised on the countryside to a small town in Denmark, she highly appreciates the Danish concept of ‘hygge’ – and is definitely not afraid of Brussels’ weather.
Tenna has completed both of her studies – a bachelor degree in Business, Language and Culture and a master’s degree in Cultural Sociology – at the University of Southern Denmark. She believes in diversity as the most focal prerequisite for social change and her main interests revolve around topics such as social inclusion, intercultural encounters, international solidarity and human rights.
Thanks to her inborn curiosity and various experiences abroad, Tenna has become a citizen of the world and fallen in love with its cultures and people: a semester abroad on the Gold Coast, Australia; internship with an art and culture organization in Ramallah, West Bank; short-term volunteering activities in Uganda and Rwanda and not least one year working with non-formal education in Rome, Italy.
She speaks Danish and English fluently, has a decent level of German and Italian and is curios to strengthen her skills within the Arabic language. She might catch up on some French or Flemish as well.
Tenna is excited to join the YEU family and everything that comes along with it!
