To effectively and fairly shape the energy transition, young energy professionals need to keep learning from each other by sharing experiences and perspectives. I’m happy to be actively involved in stimulating the dialogue between the professionals currently tackling this challenge. With a background in international development, I see the differences and similarities of the energy transition in the global south and north. At YES-DC, I hope to link up these different perspectives so they will benefit from each other. I’m excited to organise effective events where people meet, grow their network, and learn.

I believe that energy is the key contribution to financial development and there is a nearby connection between the accessibility of energy and the development of a country. YES-DC is the perfect platform to bridge that gap and share knowledge from different people on exciting topics. It would be a great opportunity for me to understand the prospect of the energy industry better and gain a well-rounded insight by networking with people.
