What drives you, Birgit?
As a writer, I have specialised in political poetry and have already published three books of my own. I was a member of the literary studio of the Frauenmuseum Bonn for many years. I still hold readings there and take part in the organisation of exhibitions and vernissages.
I am passionately committed to Europe and am a member of Pulse of Europe. It is important to me to help promote the European idea. As press officer of the Pulse of Europe Bonn I have contributed to making a difference: It is important to me that we have a common future at European level, a future that we all shape together.
