Communications & Media Relations Manager
Tessa holds a B.Sc. in Neuroscience and currently studies a Master of Epidemiology and Public Health at Karolinska Institutet. During summer 2016 Tessa was one of the interns who evaluated the Maama project in Uganda. Seeing the work on the ground and getting to know the passionate staff at SOGH’s partner NGO UDHA, who work closely with the Maama project, was truly inspiring. Understanding the situation of the project beneficiaries – expectant and recent mothers – and that of everyone working on the project – community health workers, clinic staff, the project coordinator Jairus – will be helpful in working for SOGH while back in Sweden. Tessa was SOGH’s event manager between autumn 2015-2016 and is now in charge of communications and media relations.
