My profile

My name is Veronika and I was born in 1988 in Berlin. Since I was young I have loved to create creative spaces of learning and experiences for others. Actually, I learnt the most in those moments of my life, where I didn’t sit in any class room, but when I did something practical, when I experienced life and when I traveled. I was searching for my own path in life for quite some time until I realized that I want to be part in creating the way we learn through experiences. I love travelling, personal development, intercultural understanding and non-formal education. My passions led me to create the Vision of Navigaia Journeys that supports, inspires people on their inner and outer journeys.

Bachelor in Public Management

Co-founder of the educational NGO Weitblick Berlin e.V.
