Each language opens up a whole new world. German is the language through which I first discovered life. Bilingual South Tyrol gave me access to Italian. French is the language I currently live in. English is my travel money â€“ and the grand portal I found to literature studies. Russian opened up a completely new view on things I started to take for granted - like Latin roots in scientific terms. Spanish is a half open door through which I now and then take a glimpse at unknown lands. I am a certified translator and interpreter with over 4 years of experience in translating (focus on law and economics, the medical sector and literature), (web) publishing and event organisation for a think tank, almost 6 years of experience in the public information department at the UN Office in Geneva, as well as working experience with Kyrgyz charity foundations and the Swiss independent film sector.

I am a motivated individual looking forward to new challenges and opportunities to meet new people everyday. I am very much interested in development and humanitarian fields which accounts for my moving from Cameroon to Switzerland to study Humanitarian Action. I worked for a local NGO in Cameroon by name Civil Initiatives for Development with Integrity (CIDI) and got involved in supporting project management in civic education and functional literacy programmes. I threfore look forward to ways of improving my experience and skills in the sphere of development and humanitarian activities whichever way I can.
