Project Description

Darienne Hunziker
Equality North West and Results UK

Dari was born in the late 80ies in Germany to a Mexican mother and a Belgium raised father, grew up in Mexico, Germany and Switzerland and studied international relations and later her MSc in Globalisation and Development in the UK.

Before studying she used to work as a spoken word poet and performance artist, which gave her the opportunity to experience various socio-economic issues and their impact on human development in a creative and economic spectrum. Having worked in such opposing fields she enjoys cross-fertilising knowledge, ideas and visions with people from all disciplines.

She has worked and volunteered in the last year as a campaign and group leader for Results UK, a creative lead for vulnerable homeless youth, fundraising and communications assistant for a charity dedicated to street children in Africa, and recently started as a media coordinator and researcher for an Organisation called Equality North West.

She has also been involved with Student Stop AIDS, Universities Allied for Essential Medicines, and Stop TTIP. Long story told short, she is interested in poverty, politics and poetry. Other than that she enjoys climbing, making music and going on adventures.
