Sara amplifies the voice of professionals that have to navigate the uncertainty of our post-covid age. Even for a digital native, the transition to entirely online work can be challenging – what does it look like to enter the new office without ever setting a foot outside your bedroom. Having no access to begin her Master’s at Johns Hopkins University this year, the Finn swapped her ticket from Washington to The Hague. She signed in for an alternative adventure, to convert the ICP mission into a growing business community.
