I am currently a junior at the University of the South pursuing a major in German. For the next year I will be studying at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany under a merit scholarship awarded by the Verband der Deutsch-Amerikanischen Clubs. I've grown up learning and speaking German at home, and have studied the language academically for nine years. I scored a 5 on the AP German exam my sophomore year of high school, and have been initiated into the Delta Phi Alpha German Honor society. Additionally, I have been awarded a certificate of C1 proficiency by the Deutsch in Deutschland language school. At the moment I am trying to build my resume and kick off a freelancing career.
