I get switched on when others tend to turn off. I’m passionately interested in what’s happening in the world and its effects. I soak up new information like a sponge and throw myself into any new political debate. The major issues and challenges in our world especially revolving around peace, prosperity, environmental protection, justice, and human rights are what excite and drive me.
I want to be socially engaged and I’m curious about other cultures and ways of thinking. I’m interested in building bridges and find it rewarding when I can contribute to achieving or helping to develop solutions to the major challenge of finding peaceful resolutions to conflict.
I believe in diplomacy as a driving force on the conflict-ridden world stage. I want to encourage people to stop fighting each other with weapons or exploiting their economic power, to negotiate instead with words, knowledge, and values. I see myself as a future intermediary between cultures and their respective interests. In the future, I can see myself either in the Foreign Office, working for an international company, or with an NGO.
I want to learn about and understand the context of international politics and economics, ecology and ethics, legal regulations, and cultural ideas, as well as the art of diplomatic negotiations from scratch. That’s why I’m studying “International Relations” at Karlshochschule.
