Kiva Fellows 20th Class
Louise grew up in Stockholm, Sweden, and studied International Business at the University of Stockholm. From a young age she has been a passionate traveller and was always keen on living abroad. The majority of her professional career since graduation has been in management consulting and investment banking in the City of London, helping different clients to respond to unprecedented challenges and delivering sustainable transformation with global remit. Inspired by the global conversation on sustainability and the role of corporate leaders, Louise decided to leave London to support this agenda at its roots in the developing world. Based in Nairobi, Louise has leveraged her experience of strategic change to help nations generate youth employment and responsible leaders by teaching leadership and entrepreneurship to vulnerable communities across Sub-Saharan Africa. Louise now aspires to pursue an international MBA as a springboard into social entrepreneurship and is very excited about the practical experience and knowledge that she will be able to acquire as a Kiva Fellow.
