My name is Tiffany Ware. I am 21 and I will be a senior at the University of Dayton in Dayton, Ohio. My major is Chemical Engineering and I working towards a German minor. I will have an internship at the Fraunhofer Institure (IZPF) this summer through the RISE program. I first fell in love with Germany through my great-grandparents and my grandparents (my step-grandmother speaks fluent German). With such a rich history how can you not be interested in Germany??? My first trip to Germany was when I was 17. I became good friends with the German foreign exchange student at my high school, and decided to visit after he returned to Germany. I stayed with his family and was immersed in the culture. The wonderful experience helped me to pursue German courses at my Uni and even travel to Germany more. I learned of the DAAD through my German language professor. I applied and was thrilled to find a project related to my research background…Polymers and materials engineering. I can’t wait to keep you all updated on my epic adventures this summer!!
