Christin developed a passion for sustainable tourism while working at a tourist resort in Vietnam and travelling throughout South-East Asia after her A-levels. She then moved to the Netherlands to complete a Bachelor in Tourism Management, including a minor in Community Based Tourism which took place in South-Africa as well as studying in Indonesia for a semester. She then achieved an MSc in ‘Responsible Tourism’ in the UK.

Her passion to help the tourism industry in minimising its negative impacts and maximising the positive effect it can have, has led her to work with Travelife during and after her studies. She then moved on to work with Hostelling International, supporting global hostel associations and youth accommodations on their sustainability journey.
