menac puts a focus on two points I am very interested in: the MENA region and the media. The committee’s mission, aims and goals go together with my own and I believe that our work can help change things for the better. On a small level, fair enough, but that is where real change starts. Intercultural dialogue, cultural awareness and diversity can be vague terms. menac’s work gives them a more concrete face. Working in a team with people from all over Europe and the MENA region is the best thing about menac. The exchange of perspectives and development of ideas together is just brilliant. I am looking forward to finding funding for our upcoming project Rethinking Journalism and working to become more professional as an organisation.
