Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
My name is Juliane Bönisch. I was born on June 9th 1980 and grew up in the
Eastern part of Germany.
After finishing highschool in 1999 I spent 5 months in London caring for a
disabled woman as a fulltime volunteer. As I originally intended to study
medicine I also worked at the hospital in my hometown for 6 months.
But due to the fact that I have always been interested in both Great Britain
and the US, I finally decided to study English and American studies as a
major at Humboldt-Universität.
Unfortunately I have not really found a single focus yet, but I am
interested in the American self-perception. Especially in the way the Americans define
themselves and what they consider to be typically American. In regard to the
symposium I found it very interesting to learn how the Americans see
themselves in a global setting. Furthermore, I consider this stundent's symposium as
an unique chance to visit the United States.
I am very fond of sports which means that I spent most of my freetime going
to the gym. Besides sports, I also like reading and all this usual stuff everyone
of us likes such as meeting friends and movies.:-)
