I have completed my Master in Political Strategy, Communication and Foreign Policy (Arctic region) and worked in the Latvian Parliament (Saeima) afterwards. Since a semester abroad in Australia I have developed a great interest in risk and crisis communication and have written my master's thesis in this field. During my studies I supported a MEP as a social media adviser in the European Parliament. Already during high school and my bachelor studies I worked in election campaigning and communication strategy in Germany, Australia and the USA with a focus on social media, especially Instagram. When I'm not studying or working, I scroll through Instagram (for research purposes, of course), engage in volunteer projects, such as a political blog, or participate in youth events around the world.
