Cultural Geography Master’s Student at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg (GER). I did my BA in Philosophy and Cultural Geography in Erlangen, Reykiavík (Iceland) and Quito (Ecuador).
I used to do a little bit of freelance journalism and was born 1989 in Coburg, Germany as the offspring of Polish migrants.
In philosophy, my focus lies on moral theory, ethics and political philosophy.
I am a co-founder of several projects. The main points of interest regarding my activism are sustainable agriculture and food-production: food-sovereignty and animal-rights, protection of the environment and social as well as global justice.
I was lucky to help building up the following projects:
- community garden project “Stadtgarten Nürnberg” www.stadtgarten-nuernberg.de
- urban gardening project “Essbare Altstadtmarktpassage Erlangen” as part of Transition Town Erlangen: http://erlangen-im-wandel.de/category/essbare-stadt/
- Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Erlangen (SoLaWi-Erlangen)
Further I did editorial work for www.bluepingu.de, published in Plärrer (Germany), Stúdentablaðið of University of Iceland, and die.tageszeitung “taz”. Currently I am maintaining the Facebook-page of Solawi-Erlangen.
Since 2013 holder of scholarship of the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung in the program “Media diversity, differently: young migrants into journalism” (“Medienvielfalt, anders: Junge Migrantinnen und Migranten in den Journalismus”)
Member of the Leonardo-Kolleg for excellent students at the FAU.
Photography is a hobby of mine. All pictures you can find here are taken by me – unless I’m on it or specifically noted. Feel free to use and spread them, if you like them. In that case please also forward a link to my page. Thanks!
The blog on this side, Hvalreki, is a personal potpourri of the articles that I write on various topics that move me. Mostly this will be on ((contemporary)) politics, philosophy, activism and the like, often inspired by my travels. This is also where I publish my photography.
For any more info please feel free to contact me. I am fluent in German, English, Polish and getting there in Spanish.
