I am 31 years old and I live in Berlin in Germany. I will be in the United States in November to meet some friends in Boston and NYC and to go surfing on Hawaii. I am very much looking forward to seeing the USA during the presidential elections as I have followed U.S. politics closely since I have did my B.A. in International Affairs. I am also holding a master's degree in management and have been working for some years in the renewable energy finance industry. One of the things I like about the U.S. is their contemporary literature. This year I have very much enjoyed J. Franzen's Freedom and The Corrections. I am a passionate about hiking with a tent and have toured a Norwegian national park this summer with a friend. Here in Berlin I am living in a flatshare in Kreuzberg with two girls. I often meet friends and we cook together or go to cultural events.
