My name is Katrin and I am the new intern in the Cultural Department at Deutsches Haus at NYU. I am about to finish my Master`s degree in European Literatures and Cultures at the University of Freiburg. Before finishing my studies I wanted to gain practical knowledge in the promotion of German culture, preferably in an English speaking country. Located in the cultural capital New York, Deutsches Haus at NYU seems to me to be the perfect place to widen my cultural horizon.
This is my third time visiting New York. In retrospect, being on top of the former World Trade Center in 1999 was probably one of the most impressive things I experienced during my first visit to New York. My second trip to New York was characterized by many visits to museums, which I`m planning to do again during my present stay.
I was welcomed with warmth here at Deutsches Haus and I am very much looking forward to many exciting and inspiring events!
