Hello! My name is Katherine and I am an intern at the Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker Centre for Science and Peace Studies. I just recently graduated with an International Politics and History degree at Jacobs University Bremen in Germany. I love visiting new places and learning about their history and culture. Because of this, I have been traveling alone since I was sixteen and I have lived in three different continents since then. I am pretty laid back when I travel and being able to relax and unwind at the place I'm in is key for me. I'm not exactly the backpacking type but I can live rough if the situation calls for it. I would lie, however, if I would say that I prefer hiking over a good book and a cup of coffee/tea in a nice cafe at a foreign place. I prefer museums and libraries over shopping and partying and I'd rather read Nietzsche than listen to David Guetta.
