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. Currently, Sophie is finishing her Bachelor’s degree in North American Studies at 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. Now she is happy to assist the FUBiS team as an intern and to advise and support the program participants in all their needs.
