Alexandra is an LLM law student from Brussels, Belgium. She joined the King’s Women in Law association for her enthusiasm for the empowerment of women and to campaign for gender equality.

She is very excited to organize the KWIL TEDxWomen to provide a stage for women to inspire and to be inspired. Guest speakers would include not only top lawyers, but also female athletes, musicians, founders of start-ups and CEO’s of big companies. All the struggles that these women had to endure are often very similar to the stereotypes that we are facing in the legal sector.
