Summary

Having been involved with EA since 2015, I have taken the GWWC pledge in 2016 and have founded and led a German EA student group in 2016/17.

In 2017, I began a BA degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Oxford, where I got actively involved in the EA Oxford (http://www.eaoxford.com/) university group which I now lead as Co-President.

In the past, I have completed EA community building internships with EAF (2017) and CEA (2018) and I will intern with Charity Entrepreneurship (CE) in the summer of 2019.

I went vegan and got involved in the animal rights community in 2013, before encountering EA. Since then I have come to accept long-termism and consequently changed my cause area focus to prioritise work on existential risks and trajectory changes to positively impact the lives of future generations.
