Lena Pfeiffer
Lena Pfeiffer is a freelance journalist, student, intersectional feminist, daughter, sister, friend and dog lover. Leonard Cohen always whispering in her ear, she always misses Vienna whenever she’s not near. For example, when she’s studying political communication in Amsterdam, drinking coffee in the German Rhineland instead of Viennese coffee houses or writing lyrical pieces of nothing for no one but herself. For her, Vienna is a feeling. Sometimes a pretty barren landscape too. But it‘s the world of ink & coffee, and isn‘t that a beautiful world to live in?
