Last year Lur arrived to Belgium thinking that Brussels was a grey city with boring things going on. Now she believes that what started as an experience abroad to do an internship will become a long term stay. She has a MA in International Affairs from Sciences Po Bordeaux and a Bachelor in Political Sciences and Public Administration from the Autonomous University of Madrid. Now she works in EU funded project on gender based violence and women empowerment.
