Wailea uses her positive energy to assure a good vibe in our foraus community – a nationwide network of foreign policy enthusiasts – and strives to build bridges between volunteers and their many innovative projects. To this end, she uses Policy Kitchen as a key tool and method to maximise synergy potential. As part of the Policy Kitchen team, she also oversees language boundaries transcending innovation campaigns, with a special focus on making strategic foresight more participatory. Her multidisciplinary studies in France, Switzerland and the Netherlands (MSc Political Science; European External Relations) and her diverse work experiences have equipped her to combine and communicate insights from different disciplines. Before taking on her current position, she already worked for foraus on a voluntary basis as co-head of the Europe programme and contributed to several publications and blogs.
