Hello! My name is Hannah. I’m 21 years old, and I am a junior at NYU! I have been a Program Assistant at Deutsches Haus for almost two years now. I’m from Murrieta, CA, a small city about an hour northeast of San Diego. My favorite things include musical theater, cats, and colorful makeup.
I started learning German in high school because taking a year of language was a requirement to graduate. I knew I had German heritage, so I chose German (over Spanish or French) because I thought it would be cool to learn more about the culture and language of my ancestors. From day one, I fell in love with anything and everything related to the German speaking world. I took it for all four years in high school, and I am continuing my German studies at NYU and at Deutsches Haus. My dream job would be as a business analyst in a firm that operates in both the US and Germany. This way I never have to stop speaking German.
I’ve traveled to Germany multiple times, most notably this past summer when I received a scholarship from the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) to study in Bremen. Without a doubt, Bremen is my favorite German city thus far. It is so rich in history and culture. Every weekend, I visited a different museum or cultural site, just to take it all in.
Deutsches Haus is my home away from home. If you’re ever at the Haus, don’t hesitate to say hallo!
