I would like to thank you for your contributions to FSFE and for your commitment not to shy away from asking the difficult questions and calling out the need for change where it exists. And for volunteering for the fellowship representative position in the first place. It used to be an important position that brought diversity of thought into the FSFE general assembly. Even though the discussion was at times difficult, it was clear that the intentions where to improve FSFE and make it fit for the future.

I wish you all the best for the next big thing, whatever that is for you. Thanks for all your work!
