Writing is Connection
I love writing. It is my way to connect.
When I was a teenager, I wished for a way to share my thoughts with my classmates through writing without literally giving them a letter. Since the internet wasn't invented then, I started a shared diary with my closest friends where we wrote our thoughts, feelings and fears down. That is how I found my voice and the power of connection through writing.
Since then I am passionate about telling the story of people who aren't able to do that themselves. As a journalist I traveled the world from Berlin to France to China to Africa, to tell the stories of inventors, survivors and strugglers through all ages for German newspapers and magazines. For over 15 years I work for print, online and corporate publishing as a freelancer, an editorial staff member and as a chief editor.
So, if you need a story-driven content-lover, contact me. Let me find the unique angle of your story and share it.
The summer holidays have started. For many families, that means a long ride in the car or a plane – and that can be exhausting. The little ones are bored and want to be entertained. SWR Aktuell presenter Andreas Herrler discussed the tricks for longer trips with children with journalist Saskia Weneit – she speaks from experience, because she has a small son herself.
I might have found the Danish trick for happiness. At least during winter season. Want to know more? Then listen to my research in the latest Episode of the Podcast What the Denmark.
A few months ago I opened a new chapter in my life and moved to Vejle in Denmark. Through my curious journalist eyes, there are stories to tell everywhere.
So when I talked to Sam Floy and Josefine Volqvartz about their fantastic Podcast we agreed that we had to do an episode about this crazy Danish thing: winter bathing. From October to April, tons of Danes are dipping into the freezing ocean and coming out with a bright smile.
I talked to experienced winter bathers like Helle Goller, the ice swimming champion Mette BL Thomson and Jørgen Hedevang - and even tried it myself.
