Elsa Maria K.



I am a Lebanese Argentinian master's student at the American University of Beirut enrolled in the media studies department. Previously, I have done my bachelor's degree in Sociology, Anthropology and Public Relations at the University of Saint Joseph with an academic exchange to the Latin American campus of Sciences Po in France. I have also studied Chinese language and culture in Shenyang, China. As you can see, I am in love with cultural diversities! During my studies, I have become a problem-solver, a passionate humanitarian defender, a critical thinker, and a public speaker. I am a curious individual eager to explore and to learn more within my environment. I am focusing on careers related to international development, management consulting, trade and commercial analysis related to a wide cultural background, especially with International think tanks, NGO's, consultancies and UN institutions. Currently, I am a Project Officer at Aktis Strategy, I am based in Lebanon, with frequent travels in the MENA region to provide solutions for governmental institutions on projects related to governance, conflict analysis and development. Being exposed to different cultures of the world and having lived in different countries, I have understood more and more the beauty of each culture and how to address situations with different individuals regarding cultural disparities.
