“It’s not the mountains we conquer, but ourselves” – Sir Edmund Hillary
I can highly recommend the MINT-EC and HPI offers to students, as well as the Bundeswettbewerb für Informatik. These events gave me a lot of fun and joy during my school years and encouraged me in my computer science studies.
For female students, I would like to recommend the Grace Hopper Conference , which had a great impact on me.
I can only recommend it to everyone to apply for a scholarship.
I am very grateful to the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes (German National Academic Foundation), as it supported and helped me during my studies.
In addition, I would like to recommend one thing above all: Get involved in volunteer work! My volunteer work has by far shaped and advanced me the most and made me the person I am today. It's also fun, and you get to know incredibly nice and inspiring people.
I don't have a role model, but find certain characteristics of people very inspiring.
One example is Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim, who uses her YouTube channel maiLab to explain and bring (not only) chemistry to the masses.
Otherwise, I am inspired by my grandmother and my personal everyday heroes, among others.
