Scholar, Roland Berger Foundation, Munich, Germany
The 15 year old Emilie Larisch attends the 10th grade of the partner school Europäisches Gymnasium Bertha-von-Suttner, Berlin-Reinickendorf. She has been holding a scholarship of Roland Berger Foundation since 2017.
Her political interest was aroused by conversations about current politics with her father as well as history lessons at her school, the latter of which is increasingly concerned with German foreign policy and international relations. In June 2019 she completed an internship in the German Bundestag.
"Despite all the challenges that the Fridays for Future demonstrations bring, issues like these affect the students and make people confess to their political interests and actively engage in their realisation."
