After a very short thinking process and an invitation to a birthday bash in South Africa, Verena decided to take a three months sabbatical from work (yeah!). Eager to get out of the comfort zone from time to time, Verena decided to volunteer here at Scalabrini. And voila, here she is, an Allrounder for one month and very excited to be here! She was born and raised in Germany but has spent a lot of time abroad. She holds a BA hons in International Business and a MSc in Sustainability. Her first career steps were at a pan-Arab NGO in Dubai. Since it’s way too hot there in the summer and as she was missing the greenery, she moved back to Germany. She has joined the corporate world where she now consults companies, NGOs and government bodies on how to communicate their sustainability efforts internally and externally.
