Before I entered the American studies MA program in 2010, I had been studying political sciences on the BA level at Leipzig University. I am interested in US American history and politics, especially in issues centering around the development of 20th century domestic politics and foreign policy. Moreover, I am eager to compare the European Union's political development with that of the US. My future plans involve an internship in the European Union Parliament and the work to improve political communication within the European Union. If those plans will not work out, I will become Bundestrainerin for the German soccer national squad.
