About Me

My name is Michel, I am 21 and from Germany. I am interested in politics, movies, podcasts, tech and of course travelling. In the last few years I worked in Italy for a vineyard, went to the New York for a Model UN and traveled through some parts of Europe. Since October 2022 I live in Moshi where I volunteer for a year at a school. I am from Hannover, Germany where I graduated from high school in 2022. The highlights of my everyday life are the weekly visits of the cinema, meeting friends and enjoying good food whenever I can.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music-wise I like hip hop, especially Kanye West. Aside from music I often listen to podcasts like SmartLess and Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend.
I don't have a favourite movie. Lately I really enjoyed Nightmare Alley. Get Out, The Big Short, Interstellar and The Interview.
I am not really reading fiction books. Not because I wouldn't enjoy reading them but because nonfiction seems more interesting to me. The last book I read was "What Money can't buy".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Working in Italy was an eye-opening experience for me. I got to know a completely different lifestyle that I enjoyed and made me want to travel.

Teach, Learn, Share

To have a good conversation is probably my absolute favourite activity. I love to sharing ideas and getting a new perspectives on a topic.

Insight and recommendations for Moshi, conversations and a soda/beer.
