Neutral Description

I am a member of the German Mediation Foundation and the Young Mediators Initiative of the International Mediation Institute. The word which best describes me is idealist. This term is often seen negatively and mixed up with naivety. However, synonyms are optimist, perfectionist, reformer, visionary, and utopianist. In the doctrines of philosophical idealism, as by representing things in an ideal form, or as they might or should be rather than as they are. In order to come up with a strategy, a concept, find fields of improvement and solve problems for the better, this is actually the type of people you need. Indeed : how would the world look like, if there were no idealists who go beyond the established order, not being satisfied with things as they are, and offer a vision to go beyond it? I am not naive, as I worked often in difficult contexts, with such topics as poverty, exclusion, persecution, discrimination, or even violence. To give more concrete examples, I have worked a while with mentally disabled children, in an LGBTI organization in Uganda, with underage refugees who came without their parents, and several projects involving homelessness and social inclusion in France and Germany. Here is a list of my certificates chronologically: 1) 2-Year higher education training in Services and Benefits of the Health and Social Branches, 2) Bachelor of Educational Sciences, specialization in Social Intervention, 3) Master of Arts Intercultural Conflict Management,4) Master of Geopolitics and International Relations, 5) Certificate of the Institute of International Studies and Development, Techniques and Policies of International Cooperation, 6) A Mediation training which meets the German regulation standards of the Bundesverband Mediation (BM).
