Valentina Bravo Jara

Valentina is a master’s degree student in International Development and Management (LUMID) from Lund University, Sweden. She has a BA in Global Studies with a specialization in Human Ecology and Latin American history. For Valentina, it has always been very important to anchor her studies in life experiences outside the walls of the university. This has motivated her to live and volunteer in Peru for a smaller NGO (Women and child empowerment), and to pursue one semester in Buenos Aires in Postcolonial studies & Latin American history. It has also motivated her greatly to support and be part of local organizations that bring positive changes in society by providing people with language friends or help with homework for example. It is with great excitement Valentina takes on the chair role of the European region, with the aim of learning and strengthening the MDP network.
