MESSAGE
I was born in Berlin and mainly raised in Karlsruhe. After finishing my European Baccalaureate I started studying pure chemistry in Karlsruhe. I absolutely love travelling so after the completion of my B.Sc I decided to travel to Peru to volunteer at an orphanage and hike up Machu Picchu, followed by travelling through India and exploring the beauty of the country. As polymer chemistry caught my attention during my Bachelor thesis, I was interested in exploring this field and its application in the industry. I did an internship at tesa SE for 6 months, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Otherwise I love to get to know different cultures, meet inspiring people, relax in nature and enjoy good music.
