Olivia de Fouchier attends European Student Conference

Olivia-de-FouchierOlivia de Fouchier attended the European Student Conference 2016 “Envisioning a Confident Europe” at Yale University. The approximately 100 students were divided into five policy workshops and for the first time ever, a competition entrepreneurship group of which she was a participant. They discussed ideas for innovative business ventures which strive to integrate admitted immigrants into European economies and societies.

Her project, “E-U. Bridge the Gap”, a teaching program that offers a mutually beneficial exchange of language skills and career guidance between immigrants, students and senior citizens, was a finalist in the competition. The students’ efforts were assisted by E-U. representatives who, in addition to advising us on projects, gave speeches about the current state of the E-U. These included EU Ambassador to the U.S. David O’Sullivan, EU Ambassador to the UN Joao Vale de Almeida, Secretary General of the Parliament Klaus Well and Vice-President of the EU Commission Kristalina Georgieva.
