Co-founder, We Belong
Jana Degrott is a co-founder of We Belong, an initiative to inspire next-generation leadership for young European women of color to create a future pool of role models. We Belong brings women of color together in healing spaces, free of hatred and discrimination, to share and reflect on their experiences, examine their histories and identities, and construct their own life narratives. Jana’s work has led to a popular podcast that focuses on building a more inclusive and tolerant Europe. As a believer in the importance of youth voices in government, Jana is also a local councilor in her hometown of Steinsel and one of the youngest elected officials in Luxembourg.
