Eddie McCafferty, Co-Editor-in-Chief
Hannah Silverleaf, Co-Editor-in-Chief
Hannah is a stagiaire at the European Parliament's DG Communication in the Information Campaigns Unit. With a Masters in Chinese Studies, a traineeship in Brussels might not seem an obvious next step. But her Erasmus experiences in France and Spain convinced her that the European vision is worth fighting for. Hannah is an amateur yogi and keen cyclist, and bemoans Brussels's lack of cycling infrastructure (paradoxically, considering Belgium's cycling heritage) which forces her on the path of poor pedestrians like Eddie.
