About me

Hi! I'm Laura Newton, I'm 21 years old and I was born and raised in beautiful South Africa. I moved to Germany in 2015 to study. I study Environment and Energy at the Hochschule Rhein-Waal in Kamp-Lintfort.

The concept of sustainability is an interesting and important one and one that is ever changing with emerging technologies. I'm excited to be a part of a great group of pioneering individuals who want to make a difference! I'm also excite to become a 'maker' as in todays day and age its so easy to be wrapped up inn the mass produced lifestyle.

Hopefully I can create or help create something amazing that will benefit someone in some way shape or form.

Let's get creating!
