We are delighted to welcome Kathrin Holm for a four months internship, funded under the Erasmus programme as part of her university studies. Originally from Germany, she is currently a Master’s student in Development and International Relations at Aalborg University in Denmark. Kathrin discovered her interest in disability issues while working as a volunteer at a school for children with physical disabilities for a year.
She will support COFACE’s work in the areas of disability rights and education, with special regard to the analysis of the data that COFACE collected in 17 countries on the challenges and needs of family carers. Kathrin is also involved in organising the launching event of this study that will take place in the European Parliament on 30 November 2017. Apart from her mother tongues German and Danish, she speaks English, French, and Spanish.
Welcome, Kathrin! We are very excited to have you on board! You can reach Kathrin at firstname.lastname@example.org
