Born in Indonesia, Rafael has been a permanent nomad since the tender age of five, moving to a new city or country almost every two years.
Having to constantly adjust to a new culture forced Rafael to develop a keen sense of observation and a fervor for effective communication.
One year after completing a Bachelor in Business Administration degree, Rafael received his Master’s degree in International Communication Management from The Hague University in the Netherlands.
Since then, Rafael has been honing his skills and experience with various international companies and organizations – most recently for UNICEF, where he was responsible for external communications in Indonesia. It was also there when Rafael decided to dedicate his professional life to non-profit work.
Convinced by the importance of Angels Initiative, Rafael joined the team in April 2018 to help the movement achieve its mission: giving life a better chance.
