Development cooperation coordinator Maria Nefeli Marouli
Who are you? I am Maria Nefeli Marouli and I am a first-year master’s student at the University of Jyvaskyla, at the Department of Education and Psychology. I am a first-year board member of the UN Association of Jyvaskyla as a development cooperation coordinator.
What are you involved in JyYK? As the coordinator of development cooperation, I am responsible for attending the relative meetings of the Student Union’s Subcommittee and cooperate with the stakeholder association which promotes and supports the education of youngsters in Nepal.
Why are you in JyYK? I support the UN’s values and the idea of creating a united world, with peace, transparency, and respect. Education, human rights, and sustainability are the main areas that I am interested in, thus through JyYK, I can have a more active role in promoting these values and being updated about global issues in this regard.
What do you want to change? I wish to be the change that I want to see in this world. Specifically, promoting equality and equity, respect towards ourselves, others, and the environment, transparency between our stakeholders, more cooperation and less competition.
