Franziska grew up in Halle and Cologne, Germany and is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in International Relations and Organizations at Leiden University in The Hague, Netherlands. She first came into contact with politics when living abroad in Berkeley, California where she experienced her High School’s Black Lives Matter protest. Her experience living abroad quickly developed into a strong interest for cultural diversity, justice, and politics. After graduating High School in Germany, she traveled to Chile with the goal of gaining new perspectives on the world and fostering intercultural exchange by working in various local institutions. Her current studies have further strengthened her interests in global affairs, cultural diversity, feminism, and human security.
