- What comes to mind first when you think of HMKW?
Then I think of the beginning of a new phase in my life. After graduating from high school, I was able to gain valuable experience abroad and then I knew which direction my way should take. I have always had a passion for organization, creativity and communication. At HMKW, I found the perfect study program for me, one in which I can deepen and professionalize my strengths and interests.
- Why did you decide to study media and event management back then?
At first, I was particularly interested in the event sector. But the media industry, which has to constantly reinvent itself due to digitalization, was also exciting for me. The program combines these two very interesting subject areas and thus offers me a wide range of professional opportunities.
- Where did you do your internship and what was the application process like?
My first internship at Lufthansa City Center International was unfortunately terminated early due to the effects of the coronavirus, so the search started again. In the process, I came across Mindfulife. The startup focuses on meditation and mindfulness for individuals and businesses. After a phone call and sending in my application documents, I got to know the founders via video chat. A short time later, I received positive feedback and could start!
- Why did you choose Mindfulife for your internship?
I just love the mission of integrating mental health into people's everyday lives. Physical health is (mostly) trained regularly through sports, but we only take care of mental well-being when problems arise, such as stress, burnout or depression. Besides, working in a startup is an exciting experience: you learn a lot about team spirit, creativity, flexibility and personal responsibility.
