Gwen is an organizer, activist, feminist and a law student. Raised in Denmark by an American mother, Gwen has been given two perspectives. She grew up well taken care of in a welfare state. However, she always knew that, for better or worse, it was not set in stone that our society would be organized the way it was. This has been her motivation for engaging in many projects. She has been working with student organizations in Colombia, been an EU-lobbyist for student rights in Brussels and has worked as a student organizer in vocationals schools. She has also traveled in Iran, Australia and South-East Asia. Currently, she is in the final phase of a year-long organizing effort bringing together students who are working on 18+ projects to change their educations at UCPH.
