Julia Moro
Head of Marketing and Social Media
I was born and raised near Stuttgart, in Germany. My parents both come from Kasaï. After middle school, I went to an economics school, where I did my Abitur (German high school degree) in Tübingen. During my time there, I did not only discover my joy in debating (I joined the debating club, with which I've won several prizes) but I also got interested in cultural studies as well as intercultural communication and business. After school, I moved to Gießen near Frankfurt to study Modern Languages, - Cultures and Business Administration. After my semester abroad in Lille (France), where I did not deepen my interest in intercultural business but also started to learn Portuguese, finished my Bachelor's Degree in 2017 and am currently doing my Master's in the same field, focusing on linguistics, intercultural and corporate communication as well as on entrepreneurship. Shortly after I started my Master's I began to work as an Content Management Assistant for an online jeweler. Apart from that, I have already done an intercultural sensitization for a German company who wanted to work with a company in Brazil.

Yasmine Kafarhire
Deputy Content Director
My name is Yasmine Kafarhire, I was born in Bukavu in DRC and I am currently living in the United Kingdom. I attended the Sheffield Business School at Sheffield Hallam University where I obtained a BSc honours degree in Food Sciences and Nutrition. I am currently working as a dairy technologist at Muller Milk and Ingredients. As a food technologist, I work to help develop healthy, safe, and convenient food products by developing better methods of food preservation, processing and packaging procedures, better storage and delivery processes. All these, through production planning, market and consumer research, and financial management. I am also trained to conduct research in harmful food additives and develop substitutes in order to make sure foods are safer and healthier. As a Congolese, I always believed that investing in our agriculture and creating our own industrial food companies will be of great contribution towards a better future. Agriculture forms a significant share of the economies of all African countries. As a sector, it can therefore contribute towards major priorities in Congo such as growth in industrialisation and economic diversification, boosting of international trade and investments, eradication of poverty and malnourishment, while creating jobs, human security and communal prosperity.
