MEET YOUR SESSION 2 PROGRAM LEADER: KATE WHEELER
The countdown to Berlin is on! Are you excited?
My name is Kate; I'm a returning program leader for the Global Discovery program in Berlin, Germany. I'm looking forward to getting to know the new group of students, introduce them to the Start-Up scene in Berlin and help them with their business plans!
A bit about myself....I'm originally from Vermont, but made my way to Europe shortly after graduating from the University of New Hampshire. I lived in Germany for two years, learned the language, bought a dirndl (traditional dress) and ate so.much.strudel. Shortly after my time in Germany I enrolled in a Master's degree in Europe and have spent the last two years studying Education and International Development. My degree is part of an Erasmus Mundus Consortium program where students live and study in a new country every semester. So far I've been in Spain, Holland, Malta and recently completed my dissertation research in Cuba.
The combination of study and travel has allowed me to dig deeper, going beyond a superficial understand in the countries I visit. Our students should be prepared for this type of full immersion in Germany. Berlin is a city with a unique creative energy and we will keep you busy discovering all it has to offer. Wir sehen uns bald. Ich freue mich!
