"What are your best memories of studying at the ESS?"
My best memories during my studies are with the great and impressive people I met. Especially my fellow students and the time spent together, whether studying or doing homework, having lunch in the Geo-Café, or in my free time, are unforgettable moments for me.

"What was the most important thing you learned during your studies?"
Interdisciplinary cooperation, understanding systems, openness for new things and above all how our environment and economy work in detail have given me a wide range of knowledge. In USW studies you meet a wide variety of characters and yet everyone meets with a passion for the environment, the courage to change and with tolerance. This also strengthens their social skills. Of course, the LVs were also important. I am very thankful to have learned so much about ecology and economy and hope to continue to learn in the future but also to pass on my knowledge in a sustainable way.

"What advice would you like to share with the ESS community/students?"
Always remain eager to learn and ask questions - also to yourself! For example: If you were on a trip around the world, would you take the fastest and most efficient way home? Well, I would not. The USW program offers a variety of opportunities to expand the individual knowledge of each student according to their own interests. Take advantage of them. Participate in projects, gain practical experience and sometimes take courses outside the prescribed curriculum. Don't let difficult exams get you down, fight your way through, be brave, go to professors and ask until your ears drop off when you don't understand something and most importantly, enjoy this unique time. Studying does not only mean to finish your education as fast as possible to become an "academic". To study means to a great extent to become who YOU want to be in the rest of your life.
