German-Tanzanian Simba

Student reporter Rebecca

Being passionate about sustainabilty and mindfulness, Rebecca came to Tropentag eager to find out more about research and projects around the world, seeking to accomplish the SDGs.
She came to Kassel straight after her Bachelor defence in Hohenheim, which explored the growth of tropical grasses through monitoring the leaf elongation of rice, maize, and panicum. This is also when things fell into place: after the defence, her professor asked her to replace a reporter that had left. Now she is part of the student reporter team- what an amazing coincidence!

Not only does she follow her passion for sustainability in her academic career but she also puts it into action as an active member of Greening Hohenheim, a student group rising awareness about mindfulness and sustainability at the university of Hohenheim.
Apart from saving the world, her dream is to build an earthship in Tanzania. As a first step after Tropentage2019, she is going to leave for an internship at the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) in Sri Lanka.

Our German-Tanzanian Simba is going to keep you posted throughout the conference on instagram and twitter.
