Carolin Diener

My name is Carolin Diener, and I am a fourth-year medical student at the University of Hamburg, Germany. Empathy, solidarity, intersectionality, human connections and self-care are really important concepts to me. Within activism, I have found peers with the same values as me and who fight for awareness about and action for social rights. I want to continue to build upon that work to impact structural change for a juster world.

My name is Sarah-Maria, and I’m French with a Moroccan background. Currently a Master’s student in Geography, I’m also an advocate for climate and racial justice. The only way to achieve a fair ecological transition is to help each and every one to reclaim it, and that’s what I work for. “You cannot develop people. You must allow people to develop themselves.” – Julius Nyerere, former president of Tanzania.
