“I strongly believe in political autonomy and societal justice in the sense that people have inherent rights to do what they desire, as long as they do not harm others. We live in a world where politics influence and shape our everyday lives. Being an Ambassador at the Seasteading Institute enables me to make a real, tangible change in the future of our globe. I am happy to be at the forefront of human progress and gain access into the constantly beating heart of international affairs.”
