Social Entrepreneur, Executive Director Monsterfreunde

I was studying music, while also being a kindergarten teacher and choir director (at a program of the “Wiener Sängerknaben”) and in doing so I found a life task. In my daily work with children I discovered the concept of “Monsterfreunde”. Together with a team of teachers and pupils we developed our program for elementary schools. Hence starting to beneficially transform the entire school routine through music, adventures and imagination for everyone. Monsterfreunde is an organization that aims at making a positive impact in the educational system. Through the benfits of musical education, adventure books and imagination we are improving the everyday lives of teachers, students and parents alike.
