About Me


Soak up as many languages and cultures as I can bear and spread this joy all over the world


I currently live in a 5sqm room and although everyone (including myself) likes to make fun of me living on an area that's smaller than other peoples wardrobe I am totally fine with that. As long as I have a place to sleep, a shelf to put my books, a corner for my sportsbag, awesome flatmates and of course a kitchen - cuz a woman 's gotta eat - I am all good. I study chemistry cuz I like to get my hands dirty and cuz I am super curious and at the end that's what reserach and experiments are all about. As so many chemists I dont only like to experiment in the lab but also in the kitchen. Kooking is my (not so secret) passion. And to compensate for eating a lot I like to do sports. I am doing taekwon-do for half a year now and I recently started with tennis. But the things are only as good as the people you share it with. So I like to hang out with friends for intense conversations over a beer at a cozy pub as well as to dance till your feet bleed to live music. One of my flaws is that I sometimes talk to much and another one is that, to be honest, I don't really see it as a flaw =)
