Fun facts about me
I like to crochet little animals, fruits and vegetables, but also clothes like hats and sweaters.
During my time as a doctoral student I was sometimes frustrated by this large project which took several years to complete. For that reason, I took up this fun hobby and finished many small crochet projects.
אֲנִי מְדַבֵּרֵת קְצָת עִבְרִית
I understand and speak some Hebrew because I spent over a year in Jerusalem where I did volunteer work at Café Auguste Victoria and studied Hebrew.
Rivers, streams, lakes, waterfalls… I love all kinds of water, but my favorite is definitively the sea, particularly the North Sea. I have especially fond memories of my internship at Verein Jordsand that I spent mostly on Hallig Norderoog.
I made these bee hotels for my balcony and love watching stem-nesting Hymenoptera at work. Obviously, working with ecologists who research wild bees and other pollinators has an impact on me 😉
While I was working on my master thesis in philosophy of biology I studied biomathematics at the University of Greifswald and quit after one semester.
I am a certified yoga instructor. At the moment I don’t teach, but I still practice as often as possible.
My first proper hiking experience was terrible. Who would have thought that I would eventually enjoy it after all?
I am a picky coffee drinker and enjoy vegan fast and slow food. Before I became a mother, I used to hang out at coffee shops on weekends to think, read, and write.
I play the tongue drum because the soothing sounds relax me.
I love my balcony garden – my little oasis where I like to read and listen to podcasts… so peaceful. Next time I look for plants for my balcony, I will use the conservation gardening app. These are some podcasts that I recommend: Feuer & Brot, lila Podcast, Die Alltagsfeministinnen, Die Sache ist die…, Gedankensalat
I collect semi-precious gemstones. Since I was a child I have been fascinated by the earth’s natural treasures.
