MOTIVATION

Eva Majewski (28) lives in Brussels, where she leads the EPP’s official student organisation, European Democrat Students. EDS is the biggest political student and youth organisation comprising 40 member organisations from 35 countries from Europe and its neighbouring countries. The organisation represents more than 1.6 million students.
Eva Majewski works as a Research Associate for Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, the Political Foundation and think tank related to the German Christian Democratic Union (CDU). She graduated from Humboldt-University of Berlin as Master of Science in Business Administration, Management, and Economics. Her studies led her to Italy, the United States and Canada. She has been working in the House of Representatives of the United States and with the Business Council for International Understanding. Moreover, she interned with German Lloyd in Shanghai, China and wrote her master thesis in Johannesburg, South Africa. Before moving to Brussels she was an adviser in German Bundestag and dealt with budgetary, financial, and taxation issues; focusing on the budget for the Ministry of Education.
Starting her commitment for the European Unification with the beginning of her studies, Eva Majewski has been focusing on educational matters. She deeply believes that Europe grows together the best through education: by learning from and about each other, sharing experience and drawing from best practices, education creates the common sense so desperately needed in Europe. Consequently, educational and mobility programmes are the core of her work. For the past year, she has been focusing on the opportunities arising from e-learning and on how the quality of education can be improved in the Balkans and Eastern Partnership countries.
