When were you at Warwick?
I first came to Warwick as an Erasmus exchange student for two semesters in 2010/2011 and then decided to do my postgraduate degree in International Political Economy at the PaIS department in 2013.
Do you have any fond memories?
I have loads of fond memories from my time at Warwick. What I liked particularly about Warwick is that the students and staff at Warwick are really open and welcoming to international students. Moreover, I think that studying at Warwick is both academically stimulating and a lot of fun.
Where did you live while you were at Warwick?
During my Erasmus exchange at Warwick I lived on campus in Cryfield. Later for my postgraduate studies I lived off-campus but still really close to the campus in Canley.
Were you a member of any societies?
I was a member of the founding committee of a pro bono student consultancy (180 Degrees Consulting).
What are you doing now?
After my time at Warwick, I moved back to Berlin and afterwards to Frankfurt am Main to start working.
Why did you decide to become an alumni ambassador?
There are several reasons why I decided that I would like to become an alumni ambassador. Most importantly, because I think that the University of Warwick is a great university and I had a really good time studying there. And secondly, to help other Warwick alumni to meet and stay in touch with each other after their time at Warwick.
What kind of people make up the Warwick alumni community in your area?
Most of the Warwick Alumni in my area - Frankfurt am Main - are German Warwick Alumni who have started their careers in Frankfurt.
Have you been back to Warwick recently?
I visit Warwick on a regular basis since I have a lot of friends there. Although, that will change since more and more of them are graduating and moving to London or to other destinations for work.
