Jacob was born and raised in Aalborg, but moved to Aarhus to first do a BA in Anthropology, where he spent a semester abroad in Nicaragua, and then a Master’s degree in International Studies, specializing in human rights, development and civil society organizations and their resource mobilization. During his studies, he has been engaged in activist work both as a volunteer with Amnesty International and Aarhus for Mangfoldighed and as an intern in the Danish solidarity organization Afrika Kontakt. The driving force behind this engagement and his chosen career path has been a passion for human rights and dignity as well as a vision of a world in which everyone enjoys these equally. After his studies, he therefore plans to pursue a career within this field.
