About my guest
Eileen O'Sullivan is Deputy Mayor of the city of Frankfurt in Germany since 2021. She is a member of the pan-European political party Volt Europa.
We talk about what politics is like for a newcomer. What are the challenges of creating change? What surprised her about politics. How is being a politician perhaps similar to being a parent. How to set boundaries, separate politics from the rest of life, and gain some peace of mind. And Eileen shares a message for those who wonder whether they are right for politics.
