I’m a student at Lindenwood University, Saint Charles, MO since three years now. My home country is Germany. I am fairly busy trying to manage classes, competing in NCAA swimming, and working as a reporter for the student newspaper The Legacy at the same time, but this is what I love to do and I think it is a lot of fun.

Besides that, I love to travel whenever I get the opportunity to. It is the best education available and really changed my view of the world in positive terms. Exploring new countries and cultures is something I believe everyone should do.

What I am also really passionate about is reading books. I enjoy reading novels and biographies the most. Among my favorite authors are Hermann Hesse, Oscar Wilde, G√ľnther Grass, Salman Rushdie. The last book I read was The Circle, which is a novel by Dave Eggers.

Oh, and I love to cook and bake. I am obsessed with spicy food and I like to try all kinds of exotic food. However, I try to eat clean and healthy as much as I can, so I convert the recipes if necessary.
