Africa is coming!
„For me, the challenge was switching back and forth between different and oftentimes completely new work tasks. That required well-honed multitasking skills and carrying them out seemingly blindfolded. It is really the orientation process – that feeling of not knowing at the beginning through to sorting out and ordering of subject matter – up until the actual creation process. That itself gave me so much.“
„I completely rediscovered myself. Both professionally as well as personally. The culture shock I will get when I return to Ghana might even be greater than when I first arrived in Germany“
