Background

Stephanny is originally from Brazil, but for the past 9 years she has been living in different European capitals such as Berlin, Madrid, Bucharest and (currently) Rome, due to educational and volunteering reasons. 

During her bachelor’s at the Autonomous University of Madrid and due to being awarded two academic merit-based scholarships, she was able to take part in two overseas semester exchanges, first to Tokyo at the Sophia University and then to Singapore at the National university of Singapore. She was also an intern with a local NGO in the Nepalese countryside, where she supported the creation and facilitation of female empowerment and environmental awareness workshops to the local women. She graduated with honors as top of her class of the International Studies degree in 2019.

She has in the last few years been very actively engaged with volunteering, both locally and internationally, short, and long term. She took part in a year-long ESC funded program, promoting environmental awareness and human rights to children and young people in schools and hospitals around Bucharest and the surrounding areas, employing a non-formal educational framework. As a follow up contribution, she became a Youth Panel member for the General Online Training platform of the European Solidarity Corps.

Stephanny is currently a second-year master’s degree student of Development and International Cooperation Sciences at the Sapienza University of Rome. She is also part of the Voicify project, which aims at fostering and advocating for YREMASUD (young refugees, exiled, migrants, asylum seekers and undocumented) political inclusion and visibility within the European sphere and at laying the foundation of the first-ever European umbrella organization of YREMASUD self-led organizations. Additionally, she is an intern of the Collaborations department at Catalyst 2030, a global movement of social entrepreneurs and social innovators from all sectors who share the common goal of creating innovative, people-centric approaches to attain the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

Her personal background has led her to develop a special interest for migration flows and trends and its connections to human rights, gender, and the environment. She also has an interest in identity and nationality engineering and has since her bachelor’s been focusing on the Southeast Asian political sphere and events. Throughout her personal and academic life, she has acquired a multidimensional view which allows her to understand and analyze situations from a cross-cutting approach. She is also actively engaged in the conservation and promotion of EU and democratic values.
