“My passion is not really to change the world, because the world is changing every day anyway. My passion is to contribute to making that change a positive one.” Sara Barragan, alumna of the Master in International Relations, currently works at the World Health Organization and is disrupting the industry by trying to make a real difference in the world.
I’ve always been eager to understand the world that we live in, and get to grips with its many complex challenges. After my bachelor’s, I had a brief experience in Africa where I recorded a social documentary about the living conditions of unaccompanied children in Mali. Together with a small group and an NGO, we built a school which is now providing education for 300 children. I’ve been working in the migration program on refugee and migrant health at the WHO for the past four years, and I’ve been privileged from a professional perspective to witness and actively participate in international agreements that tackle the issue of migration and refugees.
