billede af Malia

Meet Malia – she is a volunteer in AfriCAN’s Communication Committee. Malia has a background as a Multi Media Designer from Erhvervsakademiet Lillebælt. She is currently studying International Business Communication at SDU in Slagelse. As a multi media designer she was an intern at the Danish NGO, Børneulykkesfonden, and here the feeling of making a difference for other people caught her. After her internship she continued volunteering the same place. When Malia started at SDU in the summer of 2015, she saw the opportunity of using her previous experiences and competencies in AfriCAN. Education for everybody, help to self-help, cooperation – that was what lit a fire in Malia and made her become a volunteer in AfriCAN. Malia hopes to contribute in making a difference and give a hand to those who need it the most. Currently Malia is working on optimizing AfriCAN’s website by user tests, and she is also a part of developing AfriCAN’s social media strategy.
