What are the most valuable skills that you took from your education at RSM? 
"Having studied at RSM has first and foremost taught me a great deal about how to work in teams with people from various backgrounds and cultures. Having studied in a cohort with more than 50 nationalities has also led me to appreciate the different nuances of cultures as well as languages… and food, of course. I also learned how to communicate and work more effectively and efficiently under strict deadline schedules with multiple projects running at the same time."

What was the most memorable moment at RSM? 
"The Eureka Week in 2009 as well as my very own, personal graduation ceremony with a handful of close friends in 2012 since I could not attend the regular IBA Graduation."

How would your former classmates describe you? 
"They would probably describe me as highly sociable and communicative person who loves to meet new people and learn about their stories. Additionally, they would say I am highly committed as well as ambitious and goal-oriented. Finally, they’d say I’m crazy about running and traveling."

Name 3 things that make you smile each day!
"(1) Having a loving and supportive family as well as great friends all around the globe.
(2) Sports.
(3) Being able to choose what I want to do; then pursue."

What is your greatest passion in life? 
"I’m passionate about sports and dedicate myself especially to running. I have participated in the RSM Marathon Running Team as support for the 10k distance in 2011 and also finished two full Marathons in Stockholm (2012) as well as Paris (2013) already. I’m also a passionate traveler. Having friends all around the world makes it easy to visit many different countries and continents and thereby getting to know the places on a more personal level."

What is your ‘I WILL’?
"I WILL… travel the world."
