“Luisa’s curiosity for migration topics has brought her to work and study migration, while on the move herself. Whether conducting research, consulting or working for international organisations in Morocco, Turkey or Germany, her work has always involved departing and arriving in new places. She has long been concerned with the question: “How can people be empowered to engage in society to their full potential when arriving in a new place?” Luisa co-founded SINGA Deutschland and is now making good use of her experience to support the SINGA team as an advisor.”

Interested in how social entrepreneurship can be used to create innovative solutions to existing challenges, Sima co-founded SINGA in Berlin and is now a precious advisor for the team”
