Regional Operations Associate

Lara started to work at Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation this July in 2021, as a Research and Fundraising Officer, and then was promoted to the position of Regional Operations Associate. Originally from Germany, she moved to Sweden in 2019 to start her Master in Sustainable Destination Development at Uppsala University, located on the beautiful island Gotland. This program helped her to become even more engaged with critical questions of how to design a sustainable life. With her enthusiasm, she decided to pursue her academic path further and started her second Master's in Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change Adaptation at Lund University in 2020. This program serves as a valuable addition to her previous volunteering experiences abroad, and sheds light on the theoretical side of issues. Therefore, she can support the organization with her diverse knowledge about climate-smart solutions, disaster risk management, and, capacity assessment.

She is dedicated to giving people a voice who cannot be heard, and shifting the focus to the unseen. She is highly communicative, organized, and empathetic. Thereby, she shares the mission, and vision of the organization to restore dignity and harmony, within a diverse, transformative, and collaborative environment. Her side job as a Yoga Teacher helps her to find balance, and further enables her to combine the idea of union (Yoga=Union) and being in the now with her work. Moreover, it gives her new perspectives, and facilitates her "thinking outside the box". In her spare time, she likes to be outside in nature, and to spend a lot of time with her loved ones.
