Karolína works at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic, where her primary concern is inclusive education. She became interested in human rights while attending high school and it still remains a big topic for her now. As a student, she volunteered for the People in Need NGO. Later during her studies at Charles University, she became a member of Amnesty International. She has great interest in people and their stories. She focuses on the social aspect of human rights – poverty, how poverty affects the lives of people and how we can fight it. She is very active in promoting the Roma cause. Every year she organizes a “Roma Week” to introduce students to the Roma culture and, most importantly, to draw attention to the problem of Roma children, who are segregated from mainstream primary schools. These interests led her to a career in the public sector.
