Isabel Schröer was introduced to Humanity in Action through her work for the documentary educational film project with WINGs and ROOTs, a project initiated and realized under the direction of a Humanity in Action alumna. With a great interest in the intersections of migration, societies in transitions, and matters of social justice, Isabel studied Regional African Studies and Social/Political Sciences in Berlin, Germany, and New York, USA. Freelancing as a production assistant for the German broadcaster ARD’s Hauptstadt-studio, she followed her passion of working in journalism for six years. Isabel has been engaged in anti-racism work and the empowerment of refugees through various projects. In 2011, she took upon the legal custodianship for an unaccompanied minor in Berlin. Through her work as a job advisor for asylum seekers, Isabel recently completed a year of working within the bureaucratic system and of working with people going through that system as part of their asylum process in Germany. Isabel is a Humanity in Action Senior Fellow (Berlin Fellowship 2013).
