Hello everybody! My name is Helene and I’m the new volunteer/intern for the cultural program at Deutsches Haus at NYU. I’m a 21-year-old student born in the beautiful German city Dresden, currently seeking a Bachelor’s degree in American and English studies. My major studies focus on English and Romance language linguistics at the University of Hamburg. After graduating from High School, I chose to travel abroad to London to work and decide what the next step in my academic career would look like. I have spent my past semester studying at New York University’s College of Arts and Science and took classes addressing topics ranging from Sociolinguistics or Psycholinguistics to Social and Cultural Analysis. During this period, I have encountered a lot of positive attitudes towards the Deutsches Haus, not only concerning its highly valued language program but also because of its great and exceedingly interesting events in the cultural program. This was one of the many reasons why I decided to apply for this position, and as of yet, I am greatly enjoying my time here at Deutsches Haus.
