What’s your name?
How many years did you attend ISHR?
What year did you graduate?
What are you up to now?
I am a policy advisor for the Vice President of the German Bundestag Wolfgang Kubicki. A policy advisor has many tasks but long story short: policy advisors at the German Bundestag play a vital role in ensuring that MPs are well-informed, enabling them to make evidence-based decisions and contribute effectively to the legislative process. My work in the German Bundestag is a fulfilling task. My office is right next to the Reichstag in Berlin and I have a very trusting working relationship with my boss, Wolfgang Kubicki and most of all – it’s fun!
What was your favorite subject at ISHR?
History and English with the legendary Mr. Cormier & Mr. Lowe.
In what ways do you feel ISHR prepared you for what came next?
The excellent, comprehensive general education that I received at ISHR made it easy for me to successfully master the following steps and find my way through the first semesters of university. I am very grateful to my parents for allowing me to attend this school.
What was the biggest challenge you faced in adapting to life after ISHR?
Biggest challenge is interesting. Maybe the freedom to be independent and find my own way which was exciting but also suddenly very ‘on my own’.
What advice would you give to current students or your former self?
A lesson I learned is that you don’t learn for school – you learn for life. My advice: remember this saying and take it seriously! Remember that you are not alone – there are always people willing to help and support you if you let them. Good luck on your journey!
What’s your favorite memory from your time at ISHR?
There are so many memories. But it was really the people and the community that make ISHR special.
