I am 27 years old and currently live in Berlin, Germany. After I finished my degree in business administration I went on a trip around the world. While travelling I became aware of the problems developing countries are facing and decided to become a social entrepreneur.
During my journey I started www.Ecosia.org - a green search engine - in order to contribute to the protection of the rainforests. Ecosia already donated well over 400k USD and has more than 200,000 users worldwide.
I am very interested in ideas that can improve our world in a major way -- especially in the fields of environment and education.
