After my studies of political and social sciences at the University of Hamburg (2011 - 2015, B.A.) and the Humboldt University of Berlin (2015 - 2019, M.A.), I started working for the "Ost-Ausschuss der Deutschen Wirtschaft e.V." in the "Zoran Djindjic Internship Programme of German Business for the Countries of the Western Balkans" due to my research interest in Eastern Europe (until the beginning of 2022). 
After three years in a business association, I had the feeling that I wanted to make changes in a positive way and since then I have been working in the basic education landscape for the "Grund-Bildungs-Zentrum Berlin" for the so-called "Alpha-Siegel" trying to anchor the topic of literacy stronger in the state politics of Berlin.
