About me: I was born and raised in Germany and graduated from WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management in 2019 with a degree in International Business Administration. After that, I took a gap year in which I completed several internships in consulting and co-founded a talent network, initiated to support dedicated high-school students on their educational and career path. After I graduate from LBS, I see myself working as a consultant with a strong interest in restructuring cases. However, the intended specialisation may change in the future as I am currently exploring a wide range of opportunities, for which LBS is a great place to be. Even more, what distinguishes LBS from other business schools is its very diverse student body. I have experienced a strong community feeling since day one. Everyone I meet is open-minded and enthusiastic about sharing their experiences and ideas, making every single conversation enriching and enjoyable. Beside my studies, I enjoy playing classical music, doing sports, and exploring London with my friends.

Three topics I can be approached about: Community; deciding between business schools; application process
