Henzy Manaligod Richter is an ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) research professional who has long swapped her foreign language teaching and translation background for sustainability-related research. Apart from Filipino and English, she is fluent in Spanish, French, German and Portuguese, and has some basic knowledge of Italian and Dutch. While she does a lot of reading and analysis for a living, she would still like to have more time to read her books on sustainability, minimalism, and foreign language acquisition. On sunny weekends, she enjoys going out for long walks around Frankfurt's Green Belt ("Grüngürtel") area, hiking in and around the Taunus, and discovering castle ruins nearby. She lives in Frankfurt am Main with her husband, daughter and their growing collection of indoor plants.
