My name is Sabrina and I am happy to be the new Cultural Program Intern at Deutsches Haus at NYU for the next six months.
I lived in Frankfurt for the past six years, where I studied history and philosophy, and am currently completing my master’s degree. Due to the big international airport, Frankfurt has long been a center of migration and cultural exchange, but is mostly known for being Germany’s financial capital and for its skyline, which is the reason for the city’s nickname “Mainhattan.”
Experiencing life in New York is fascinating in many ways. Since one side of my grandparents came to Germany as immigrants, hoping for a better life, it touches me to see how people from all over the world came with the same aspirations to New York and shaped the city’s life and culture. Therefore, I am very happy to have the opportunity to spend some time in this multifaceted city and to get a better understanding of both New York and the United States.
Alongside my studies I lived out my passion for literature by working as an editor in a publishing house and as a sales assistant in a book shop. After interning and working in different branches of the cultural sector, I am excited to widen my experience in intercultural work and am happy to be part of the Deutsches Haus at NYU team.
See you at Deutsches Haus!
