From a young age, I was the one with so much, often too much, energy. Ready to recite her poetry standing on a chair, but too shy to say what I felt or thought. Always empathetic and often criticized for being too sensitive.
Fortunately, one grows up and my university experience has always helped me to understand myself and accept my qualities.
My Bachelor’s degree was in Languages, Civilizations and Language Sciences and it gave me the opportunity to combine all my passions and skills into one: languages and people.
Studying in another city for my bachelor’s degree was a great step to giving a title to what was the book of my life, moving to Germany was the second step to start writing the chapters.
Changing a country can be scary for a hundred reasons.
The important thing is not to let the fears and uncertainties in our heads stop us. This has been my reminder from the beginning.
In just one year I have collected pages of memories and experiences. Germany is allowing me to complete my studies exactly as I had imagined. I also have time to gain experience in the fields that most attract me so that I can discover new perspectives. I enjoy meeting new people and I enjoy even more finding friends and people to grow with.
As a student, I feel I have the opportunity to do anything. The student community is incredibly vast and rich and teaches you to be open to new opportunities.
I would never change my choice and will always recommend anyone taste a bit of this beautiful country at least once.
