Here they introduce themselves in their own words.
Hi, I’m Amelia Hughes
My interest in politics, and travelling have meant that I have been fortunate enough to work with politicians in Europe and further afield. In the UK I have worked with MPs and local councilors in the North East, seeing first-hand the positive impact the EU has had on that region. Internationally, in Brussels, I conducted research on youth unemployment for S&D MEPs and worked in Essen on a Comenius Project coordinating a programme on youth homelessness.
In 2018 I studied abroad in Washington DC where I worked closely with the Governor of Maryland and, in the US Capitol, wrote speeches for Congressmen. In 2020 I relocated to Sydney, Australia, where I worked in the United Nations office focusing mainly on how Sustainable Development Goals benefit local communities. I am now living in London where, with EM, I will use my experience to help reverse the calamity of Brexit.
And I’m Michael Anderson
I have to say that I’m very excited to be onboard.
Some may remember me from when I was, before commencing in this position with EM, the Coordinator for the Young European Movement.
I hail from a Brexit stronghold, my beloved Essex. I have a BA in History from University of Southampton and an MSc in Global Environmental Politics & Policy from Birkbeck College, University of London.
Like Amelia, and many of our expanding team, I’m now based in London where I am – aside from working to help reverse the calamity of Brexit - an active musician and writer.
Before I joined EM, I gathered years of experience working both in the sustainability sector and as a policy researcher for the grassroots organisation Labour for a Green New Deal, with periods living elsewhere, in the likes of Argentina and Australia.
