The ALDE Party Secretariat is delighted to welcome Anna Abrahamsson from Finland as the new ALDE Party's Events & Fundraising Policy Officer, who will maintain an overview of all policy developments, at both a European and a national level, pertinent to the fundraising goals and upcoming events of the ALDE Party.
Anna is returning to Brussels to join the ALDE Party after two years as Secretary General of Svensk Ungdom, the youth wing of ALDE Party member SFP in Finland. She first moved to Brussels in 2013 for an internship at the European Parliament, and later returned as a Parliamentary Assistant. She has also worked as an Assistant in the Parliament of Finland and been an intern at the Permanent Representation of Finland to the United Nations in New York. Anna is also finishing her MA thesis for a degree in International Public Law at Åbo Akademi University.
Speaking on the first day at the office, Anna said: "As a European and a liberal at heart, I am excited for this opportunity to apply my skills and experience to further the European liberal agenda. At a time when Europe is at a crossroads, we need liberals to turn challenges into opportunities – to continue to be a strong voice for the European project, for innovation and prosperity, for fundamental rights and freedoms and for sustainable development. As Policy Officer, I look forward to furthering and developing these values through the activities and programmes of the ALDE Party."
