Our new learning center in Dalanzadgad, Mongolia gets support from Europe: Verena Zelger will work as BOOKBRIDGE Fellow at the center and help out with course offerings and administrational tasks. In this blog post, we introduce her.
Verena, who are you and what do you do?
I am a cultural anthropologist and originally come from South Tyrol/ Italy. I have been living in Germany for over ten years now. In the last three years I worked for an automotive company as a project assistant.
How did you hear about BOOKBRIDGE?
After graduating from university I participated at a certification program of the Social Entrepreneurship Academy in Munich/ Germany. Once Carsten Rübsamen came to our class to present the path he took with BOOKBRIDGE. I was very impressed by his commitment and the principles around the project.
What do you expect from your fellowship?
I expect to have an eceptional experience working with children and scholars in Mongolia. I would like to give the young people self confidence and a perspective showing them that education is one of the most important values in our lives. Additionally, I hope to learn as much as I can about Mongolian culture and language.
