Q&A with advocate for universal access to water Catarina de Albuquerque
A drive towards change and innovation has stayed with me.
University or straight into work?
Ambition, combined with persistence and hard work.
A magic wand, to persuade politicians to govern with the objective of promoting and fulfilling human rights, particularly human rights to water and sanitation.
My extravagance is to be able to turn on a tap and drink as much water as I like.
There are many people out there working to secure human rights.
I am happy everywhere, which is fortunate, as I travel a lot for my work.
What is the greatest achievement of your life so far?
Professionally, I have had the opportunity to engage in global discussions on human-rights violations and on human rights to water and sanitation.
I am not easily frustrated but there are times I feel that people are not taking me seriously.
