For a long time, Sophie has been interested in intercultural encounters and exchange. During high school, she spent one year in Thailand and then started to volunteer for student exchange programs after her return. Sophie holds a Bachelor degree in North American Studies from Freie Universität, Berlin. Her semester abroad at the University of California, Riverside helped her understand some of the challenges of studying in a different country. As a Program Manager at FUBiS she is happy to advise and support the program participants in all their needs.
