About Me

Hi, I鈥檓 Nadja! I was born and raised in Germany, but have spent the past 11 years abroad 鈥 8 years in the US, 1 year in Australia, and 2 years in the UK. My international journey started with a gap year right after I graduated highschool. Little did I know that this year would create opportunities that I had never dreamed of before. 

Living outside of Germany was hard at the beginning 鈥 new cultures, new people, new languages. I cried, I felt like I was not enough, and I questioned my path many times. But this was all part of my global adventure. Despite the difficulties at the beginning I didn鈥檛 let anyone or anything push me down and I was able to create a wonderful support network. 

I decided to move back to Germany last year in October. My mission now is to support expats with immersing themselves into German culture and getting the most out of their international experience. I am offering a variety of programs and Survival German is one of them. I am looking forward to supporting you on your journey abroad 馃檪
