Moin moin/Hej!! After spending a year as a Rotary Youth Exchange Student in Southern Denmark, I decided to evade the nightmarish American tuition fees and applied to university in the very north of Germany. Much to my parents’ horror, I knew that I always wanted to study in Europe, and I found a program that combined social sciences and journalism. My plan succeeded, and now I am happily studying in a beautiful harbor city that is as Danish as Germany can get – but don’t fret, my experience is still thoroughly German. I am working towards becoming a journalist, and do not have any plans to start my career anywhere but in Europe. I’ve been writing for a long time, but if you like reading the stories of people, my blog Voices of Flensburg can be found at . If you want to read about my experiences and perspectives in Germany, you’re already here.
