Abstract: I grew up surrounded by activists: in the seventies, my mother hosted conversations with other feminists and artists and my father would take me to lengthy meetings where bearded men in bell-bottoms talked about the economy, socialism and democracy. At University, I became deeply involved in student politics myself, as a founder member of the Association of Students of Commercial Studies, and as part of the student council (KSU). I had also embarked on writing satirical scripts for theatre and television, focusing on themes of social justice and the environment. Concurrently, I completed an Economics degree with first class honours - but could not shake off a terrible feeling that maximizing GDP and minimizing inflation rates were not the end-game I wanted to pursue in my career
