On his insightful trip from Canada to Brazil, with no plane tickets involved, Gabriel Esber Elias realized he wanted to continue with his studies. Having got Bachelor’s degree in Business and several years of work experience, Gabriel felt he wanted to do something new that could make an impact. He thus decided to head to Finland to learn more about questions related to social justice and welfare, which is when he found out about the track Governance for Sustainable Change in the Master’s Degree Programme in Leadership for Change. Now Gabriel’s goals are to learn as much as he can, both from theory and interaction with people, and apply the acquired knowledge in his home country Brazil. “Stop thinking and apply!”, Gabriel encourages all potential LFC students.
