I have extensive experience as a lecturer, project leader and a senior consultant, within the fields of transparency in public finances, corruption risks, countering fraud and money laundering. I also freelance as a trainer of international criminal law. Among my professional highlights reside recent master (LLM) studies at Harvard Law School, which opened my eyes to a plethora of things, including the fact that admission process to such prestigious education establishments are not as tricky and prominently tied to knowing legal codes (though that’s quite important too), as one might think!
P.S. Also - unicorns consulting (not the startups!)

Sharing a thought provoking read by Cass Sunstein: “Evolution favors the most cooperative — and the friendliest.” What if the ones that survive and thrive are not the fittest - but the ones who learn to be friendly, cooperative and see past the silly (societal some would say) divisions? I love reading his books and his articles and had the opportunity to attend his classes that have been just as exciting!
How to pick a grad school for studying abroad? Naturally, one of the first steps should be checking the international academic rankings. A great idea for the second step is to do some research and see which ones of your most followed researchers work at which university. For example, for a long time I have been following the work of Cass Sunstein on how behavioural sciences (and behavioural economy) can be used for empowering changes. He is teaching at Harvard Law School - so by pursuing my degree there, I could attend his classes, talks and engage in discussions on the issues I’ve been so passionate about.

💃🏻 products are easy to find in local supermarkets
💃🏻 cooking is easy and quick, no super skills required
💃🏻 most importantly - DELICIOUS meals! Forget trying to eat more plant based foods - think EATING MORE DELICIOUS FOODS ;-)
