My name is Annika and I am from near Leipzig- Halle, Germany. I am pursuing my Bachelors in International Communication at the Hanze University Groningen, Netherlands. I decided to return to New York after having previously spent almost two years here as an au pair, and I could not wait to move back to this amazing place. I am part Deutsches Haus’ program department: Every day includes very diverse tasks and the contact with a variety of people, which I like the most. Also, I update the social media platforms and I am excited about all our upcoming fall events. I like to be part of a multicultural environment, both privately and professionally, and Deutsches Haus offers the perfect platform for that. To me, it is an honor to represent the language and culture of my home country abroad. But also New York has always made me feel welcome and is my favorite place to be. Every day is special to me because the city has so many different faces and offers opportunities. One of the most exciting things I did so far was a spontaneous performance at the subway station on 42nd Street, since I am a singer. I will also visit Washington DC and Boston I am planning to travel to Florida to see my best friend- we grew up together and it would be unforgettable to meet her here now that we both currently live in the U.S. to fulfill our dreams!
