Name: Jennifer Rose

Always active in social and community issues, Jennifer has been involved with a range of companies and ideas over the last ten years. This includes working with tech and art-focused start-ups, being on the board of several amazing U.S. nonprofits, and working for a few high-profile companies like Levi Strauss & Co. and Microsoft. She has launched grassroots community initiatives all over the world, facilitating programs in Israel and Palestine – as well as throughout universities in the U.S. – and travelled to small local villages and schools in Africa, partnering with local clinics and nonprofits to address issues surrounding HIV/AIDS. Before moving to Brussels from California, she was highly active in her local city council and worked diligently to bring an evolving community closer together.

‘Moving to a foreign country with two small children - without speaking the language - was very daunting. I was leaving not only my family, friends and community, but also the network of doctors, childcare and family activities that I had built over the past few years. All of these things represented hours of research, years of practice and invaluable peace of mind. Starting over again in a new country with only a few months to prepare seemed almost impossible. The day I found the BCT was the first day I thought, ‘OK, I can do this.’ ‘
