Mariepaul Yapenare

Country Secretariat and Liaison Officer
B3B Papua New Guinea

Mariepaul is an experienced administrative support officer who has served in several different organizations. She holds a Diploma in Human Resource Management from the Papua New Guinea Institute of Public Administration, and is currently studying Tourism at the Australia Pacific Training Coalition (APTC) Centre.

Mariepaul has been an active member of several different organizations addressing climate change, anti-corruption, and youth development. She said what inspired her to join B3B is the idea around which B3B is centred, as it is in line with her hope to see the full realization of youth empowerment in Papua New Guinea one day. Mariepaul enjoys doing voluntary work, and is passionate about trash up-scaling and domestic, and sustainable tourism.

During the weekends, she likes to design and try out new sewing patterns, or tend to her pot plants in her backyard.
