Hello! My name is Tony, and I’m delighted to be the Cultural Program Intern at Deutsches Haus at NYU. Born in Shanghai, China, I moved to New York 4 years ago for my undergraduate studies at NYU. As a “third culture kid,” I have much interest in issues regarding race, conflicting ideologies, and identity. I spent my first two years undeclared, until finally deciding to major in sociology. As for my nonacademic interests, I play the guitar and sing (yes I can play Wonderwall upon request). I am an avid fan of Manchester United F.C., and I spend a good deal of my free time playing, watching, and talking about soccer.
From ages 9-13, I lived in Antwerp, Belgium due to my father’s work. During these years, my family frequently went to Germany, and we made some good German friends. My fondest memories of Germany include playing in soccer tournaments in Düsseldorf, visiting the Black Forest, and participating in the Kölner Karneval. In the fall of 2017, I was fortunate enough to revisit Germany for a semester studying abroad at NYU Berlin.
Before I graduated in May, I worked at Deutsches Haus part-time as a Program Assistant. My current role as Cultural Program Intern involves promoting all the good things that Deutsches Haus has to offer. I’m excited to be incorporating the skills I’ve acquired from my previous internships in advertising. As someone who really believes in the Deutsches Haus mission, it’s a pleasure to be here.
Thank you for reading, and I’m looking forward to seeing you at Deutsches Haus!
