Just try it; we (your community) will support you
Last year I received my B.A. in German Literature and Philosophy at Humboldt university in Berlin. In the fall of 2010 I am going to begin studying Economics in Magdeburg, Germany. My goal is to earn a masters degree in International Politics at a top rated university in the United States or Great Britain and to work subsequently for an NGO.
I am currently volunteering as a translator for the CEC and in various positions for the Malteser Hilfsbund e.V..
A few years ago I discovered that the only way (for me) to give life any real significance is to help others. That is why I began volunteering and decided that the best thing would be to work in a big NGO, reaching thousands and millions of people at once. Nevertheless, I am convinced that the face-to-face work is extremely important.
I do love movies (current top5: Citizen Kane, Manhattan, No Country For Old Men, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Departed), music (current top5 artists/bands: The Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan, The Strokes, David Bowie, The Beatles) and books (current top5 authors: Max Frisch, Hermann Hesse, William Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Jane Austen). Additionally, I am very interested in politics, culture, philosophy and languages.
