Simanjuntak-Soltmann, Ferawaty

My name is Ferawaty Simanjuntak-Soltmann and I come from Indonesia and belong to the ethnic group of Batak that are located in West Sumatera. In Germany, I work as a translator and event manager.

So far, I don’t have many experiences with the issue of FGM, apart from that I’m engaging myself in cultural and environmental projects within my community.

I applied for this project to become a CHANGE Agent because this practice of mutilation is no way to treat any human being and that’s why we have to stop it.

"As a woman, I seek always courage in order to break the silence...  This is the only way to stop any violence, say it... speak it!"
