We are a small, highly motivated team with diverse experiences abroad. We look forward to collaborating with you -- just send us a message if you'd like to get involved. Maybe you have a project or event for which you still need a platform, or you want to do an internship in our project, or you just want to gain new experiences. Anyone who wants to join us is very welcome!
My name is Kathrin Wild. I am 39 years old and grew up in the Sauerland. I studied cultural and language mediation at the Syddansk Universitet in Sønderborg, the Uni Joensuu in Finland and the Uni Flensburg. In Flensburg, I received my doctorate in German as a Foreign Language with a focus on pronunciation acquisition and didactics. My enthusiasm for other languages and cultures led me to teach German and English for several years in Slovenia, Denmark and England and to learn many other languages. After training English teachers at University College Syddanmark, I have most recently conducted research on early foreign language learning and multilingualism at the University of Bielefeld. For me, every experience abroad has been fraught with anticipation and anxiety in equal measure. What will await me? Will I be able to meet the linguistic and cultural demands placed on me? For me, going abroad means, on the one hand pushing myself to my limits, and on the other hand significantly expanding my own horizons and getting to know myself over and over again. What was actually waiting for me? Years of friendships, learning languages while playing cards, or with children, playing in different music ensembles, grape harvesting, corn harvesting, learning to milk,..... As part of the project, I am happy to be able to provide students with international experiences that meet their individual needs and to visit our partners in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Hungary twice a year to promote internationalization in teacher education.
Hello, I am Nastia. I’m 25 years old and originally from Russia, Saint-Petersburg. When I moved to Flensburg in 2019 to pursue my master's degree in the the EUF Culture-Language-Media program, I already had a lot of experience working with children and in intercultural contexts.
I started as an intern in the kindergarten at the Moscow German School, and also worked as a student assistant with the Chair of German Language at the Moscow State Pedagogical University, where I received a diploma with honors in 2018. I also participated in intercultural projects in museums (Moscow, Nuremberg) and worked as a Russian language assistant in Nuremberg high school for one year. In my free time, I like to travel.
The world is not one-dimensional and never was. Especially in our time of globalization, it is important to get a view of oneself, one's own and foreign cultures from a "different perspective". That is why the ideas and goals of the "Partners in Mobility" project are very important to me. I am very happy to drive them forward with our team!
Hi, I'm Annika, 23 years old and I've been supporting the team since August 2021.
Since half of my family is from Finland and I spent a lot of time there, I grew up with the advantages of multiculturalism and I don't want to miss it at all. I find it incredibly exciting to exchange ideas with other cultures and to learn from each other. I would like to keep this up myself and encourage as many students as possible to take advantage of the opportunities that are offered to us!
I study Physical Education and English at EUF and last year I was able to establish contact with Danish students from UCSyd through a really great "Joint Module" as part of my studies. Afterwards, I decided to further support the internationalization at our university as part of the Partners in Mobility team.
Hello everybody! First of all about me: I am 25 years old and am now in my second, soon to be third, master's semester at the European University with the subjects special education and history. I moved to Flensburg in 2017 for my studies and am originally from NRW. Before my studies, I was a BUFDI at a special needs school. In the team, I am responsible for the database together with Annika and Sieke, but also for the events.
I am looking forward to working in the project "Partners in Mobility" and would like to support you in your dream of studying abroad, so that you can collect individual experiences and memories!
Hello, I'm Laura, 25 years old, and I'm currently studying for a Master's degree in Culture - Language - Media at the European University in Flensburg.
I have always been very enthusiastic about foreign languages and cultures, so that I have completed numerous stays abroad after my Abitur and during my studies so far. Whether in New Zealand, Belgium, Great Britain or France - everywhere I learned new things, had great moments, made great friends and grew beyond myself in one way or another. I am incredibly glad to have had these experiences and am very happy to be able to support other students on their way abroad through my involvement in the "Partners in Mobility" project.
