About me

Enlightening personal experiences through AGYA are a great treasure that I will keep as an alumnus.

Joint research projects with my fellow AGYA members have taken me to FabLabs and Maker Spaces throughout the world, with a particular focus on Europe and Arab countries. I strive to spread the idea of FabLabs because I am convinced that they are crucial nuclei of innovation in today’s world of increasingly distributed production and value co-creation, and I believe they will only become more relevant in the future. FabLabs also help provide education and develop technical literacy where it is needed most – everywhere! Within AGYA, I have also appreciated the chance to get involved in other interdisciplinary projects initiated by AGYA members and working groups. Through these experiences, I have learned a lot regarding different disciplinary approaches, as well as regional and cultural differences.

My advice to future AGYA members

Being open to other disciplines, approaches, cultures and individual opinions is no easy task, but it’s well worth the effort.
