"Studying at Goldsmiths was a game changer, in a professional and a personal context. Being part of such an international environment and on a course with a bunch of incredible individuals has changed my entire way of thinking. I've become more tolerant, more critical and more self-confident.

I graduated four years ago, but Goldsmiths is still an essential part of my daily life. Coursemates have become close friends – so close that our gang of seven regularly meets somewhere around the globe, having a great time together and inhaling the Goldsmiths spirit. With the current coronavirus crisis turning plans upside down, we're not sure our next reunion in Tuscany is going to happen. This Friday, however, we're meeting on a virtual pub quiz, each one having some pints - so starting the weekend just like back at the Marquis of Granby!

Having gained considerable experience in tech communications and building STATION (a platform for the local startup ecosystem in Frankfurt) after graduating, I am now focusing on my own business: YPS, a PR and content agency specialising in supporting tech businesses with communications services. We are working for start-ups, scale-ups and large tech companies, national and international, helping them to raise awareness in German-speaking markets. My co-founder Mattias and I are currently learning what it's like to run your own business in all its facets - which can be exhausting but mostly is a rewarding experience."
