Alex recently completed her Joint master’s degree in Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Kent (Canterbury, UK) and University of Marburg (Germany). After she completed her internship at the Books2Africa Processing Centre in Canterbury, she continued volunteering with the charity. After completing her studies, Alex secured a job as a Junior Consultant for Public Affairs in the area of government relations. Additionally, she attended an international mediation competition in Paris and conducts mediation training, while also working as a project manager in a mediation organisation.
She joined Books2Africa as a Logistics intern, getting to work and acquire experience in different operational aspects at the charity’s UK Processing Centre, supporting fundraising activities at the charity shop and promoting Books2Africa at different events such as the London Book Fair, the Frankfurt Book Fair and Africa Writes.
Alex is passionate about intercultural relations, addressing root causes of conflict, organising and managing projects and interacting with people.
Basketball is and always has been a passion for Alex as well, and she enjoys exploring different countries and cultures.
