Marita has a BA in Peace and Conflict Studies from Bjorknes College University in Oslo, and a MA in Development and Emergency Practice from Oxford Brookes University. In her Masters degree she specialised in Human Rights, Emergencies and Development in addition to Conflict and Humanitarian Action.
She has a professional background in organisational work, and some experience doing fundraising, research and humanitarian work in Tanzania and the Middle East. That experience motivated Marita to work in humanitarian relief.
She is a strong believer in gender equality and in providing people with equal opportunities. The protection and safety of children and youth is also very close to her heart.
