Forbes recently released its annual "30 Under 30" list which selects a total of 600 young leaders and entrepreneurs in a number of different industries. One of those on the list for 2021 in the “Social Impact” category is SULaw alumna Evelyn Kachaje, who contributed to the UN World Food Program Youth Network, where over 800 young people work together within the United Nations World Food Program to combat hunger.

Evelyn, who is originally from Malawi and grew up in Botswana, graduated from Harvard Law School and then came to study SULaw’s Master of Laws in International Commercial Arbitration Law (ICAL) in 2016-2017. To Evelyn, her time at Stockholm University provided her with a very valuable foundation to her current work as a legal officer at the UN Migration Agency in Switzerland:

-  Stockholm University and the ICAL programme's international outlook have contributed significantly to my career in international law now. For example, in-class discussions in the ICAL programme always involved perspectives from lawyers with diverse legal and cultural backgrounds, and I always have this international perspective when I approach any legal issues today.

From us all at SULaw: Congratulations, Evelyn!
