Lea Kërçiku was born in Albania and moved to Germany to continue her Bachelor studies in Biology. While studying she soon become an active volunteer in groups involved in the integration of refugees, one of them being Refugees Welcome Bonn. It was through her work in the group where she soon learned about not just the difficulties that refugees face in Europe, but also about the great network of people involved in helping them. She decided to pursue her MSc in Neuroscience at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, following one of her greatest interests, understanding more about the brain. At the same time, she wants to continue investing her time in social causes related to refugees. Lea’s hidden passion since school has been drawing and painting anything from her imagination. This skill gives her a creative outlook into life.
