Lea Helfenstein is currently studying cultural sciences with major anthropology in her bachelors in Lucerne. She is a member of the SAA Board as the student representative of the german speaking students in Switzerland. Since she is participating in the „Begleitgruppe-Asyl“, a group of people who help refugees with important paperwork and organise meetings to get to know each other, she is interested in topics related to migration and integration. She is also interested in questions concerning the effect economic decisions and mechanisms have on people’s lives. This includes topics like desaster capitalism, philanthrocapitalism or funding of global health.
