Antonia Schiller


Intern, Research

Antonia is a university student from Germany who made the long journey to Vancouver to complete a six month internship with BCCIC. Originally from Berlin, she moved to Marbug to study social science at Philipps-Universität Marburg. In her first semester, she joined Etudes Sans Frontieères – Studies Without Borders, an NGO dedicated to supporting students in conflict areas with scholarships or by contributing to reconstruction and reconciliation in their home countries. She has started taking courses in international relations and European law and aspires to do her Masters in the field of International Relations and Sustainable Development. The aim of her time at BCCIC is to get an inside perspective into international work at the non-governmental level and to witness the impacts of working on the SDGs. While at BCCIC, Antonia’s research will focus on the Movement Map and compiling data for the Kelowna ‘SDG Scorecards’ project. When Antonia is not busy studying, she pursues her passion of travelling, tries to find inner peace and balance through yoga, or – most likely – ends up in a cafe to satisfy her constant coffee cravings.
