„I believe that sealing someone’s fate should not happen at sea when one is in total despair but according to human rights laws and professional insights into someone’s whereabouts.

We asked our airborne crew 3 questions.
After having lived in Nepal for the past eight years, Vanessa is now crew chief for Sea-Watch airborne.
What is your role for Sea Watch?
As a Crew Chief, I accomplish lots of little chores which provide comfort on a daily basis to the team in order to create a pleasant work environment.
What would you like to change most in this world?
I would love to see exploitative and imperialistic power structures to be eradicated peacefully and replaced by governing systems which facilitate progress towards equal chances in life and decent living/survival standards for all people and nature.
How would you persuade others to take action?
I believe that everyone can push for positive change in their family, community, social circle by creating awareness, bringing up existing issues and by moving ahead as a role model, who acts according to high morals, tolerance, reciprocity and care.
