WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
from January 2023
What’s your name?
How many years did you attend ISHR?
What year did you graduate?
I graduated at ISHR in 2018
What are you up to now?
After ISHR I started a trainee program in a personal training studio to become a “Sportkaufmann”. At the same time I studied to become a licensed personal trainer. I now have four different trainer licenses. Starting in December of 2022 I run my personal training studio in Hannover Döhren near Maschsee. The focus is on functional fitness and athletic training. I work with all sorts of customers — young athletes who want to perform better in their sport, successful business people who want to get in shape again and people 40 and above who want to stay fit and sometimes want to reduce pain or imbalances. Because of my own experience with soccer I know how important it is to take care of your body on a regular basis.
What was your favorite subject at ISHR?
My favorite subject at ISHR always was P.E. and I never wanted to miss a single class. Even if I had a cold or didn’t feel well I would still go to P.E. I enjoyed P.E with all the teachers I had especially when we played soccer or dodgeball with both grade classes.
In what ways do you feel ISHR prepared you for what came next?
ISHR hast taught me to push through things even if it got tricky. I learned the most when I didn’t know how to do or manage an assignment. Solving big challenges prepared me for my career in soccer and sports and also for life.
What was the biggest challenge you faced in adapting to life after ISHR?
My biggest challenge was to pick the right career path and what to focus on. I was lucky that I was so interested in sports and that there were so many options for me what to do.
What advice would you give to current students or your former self?
I would advise every student to take school seriously and to be open for new challenges and life long learning. If you have questions always ask a teacher, don’t be too shy to ask because the experience I made is that every teacher is there for you and willing to help.
What’s your favorite memory from your time at ISHR?
My favorite memory is the 5th grade field trip to the Harz mountains with the entire grade. My friends and I were allowed to stay in a room together. We stayed up half the night and just laughed and joked around. We also went camping in the forest which I will never forget.
