Prior to joining AAAJ-LA, Alex completed her M.A. in Development Studies at the Universität Passau, Germany, and was awarded a graduate scholarship by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). During her program, she traveled to Jakarta to participate in an internship with the Social Policy team of UNICEF Indonesia, where she analyzed social protection schemes and advocated for the implementation of a national, universal, and unconditional child grant. She additionally conducted fieldwork for her Master’s Thesis, which investigates how social norms surrounding gender and sexuality influence the phenomena of child marriage in West Java, Indonesia.
