Benjamin grew up in a little town just outside of Stuttgart, Germany. In 2004, Benjamin left for Australia to “travel for a few months.” He ended up staying for a year and almost another to travel all over South East Asia, where he learned most of his English skills and broadened his horizons. He became fascinated by the simple lifestyles, foreign cultures and exploring wildlife and was amazed by how tangible life is in the developing countries of South East Asia. Since then, he has been travelling whenever he can. In 2007, Benjamin began to study International Communications in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. During his fifth semester, Benjamin studied in Monterrey, Mexico, where he took a course in Anthropology and learned to speak Spanish. From his experience in event management and love for art and music, as well as Un Mundo’s philosophy and mission, he knew it was a perfect fit.
