I am a native of Berlin and speak fluent English, French and German and have an interest in Spanish and Scottish Gaelic. After my Undergraduate degree I hope to achieve my Masters and pursue a career in editing and publishing. My studies allow me to combine my passion for books with work. I am interested in a variety of literature which reaches from classics over comics to non-fiction. Apart from reading, I also greatly enjoy analysing the ways in which those stories work and writing them down.
