What comes to mind when you think about your studies at HMKW?
Interdisciplinary study. Independent work. Lecturers with practical experience.
You acquired a Bachelor of Arts in Media and Business Psychology at HMKW Berlin. What is your current job position?
I work as an event and wedding planner, specializing in events abroad. In addition, I also work as a coach on a regular basis. Sometimes both are combined, as psychological training often helps in the organization of events.
Did you get any further work experiences prior to your current position that you would like to share with us?
I've gotten a taste of all kinds of different industries: As a young actress I learned to present myself on stage and in front of the camera. As a journalist, I have learned to express complicated facts as simply as possible. And for Save the Children I spent my "social year" in India. After my studies, however, I immediately focused on working as a wedding and event planner.
When did you figure out your preferred career path? How much was your choice influenced by the compulsory internship?
I knew long ago that I am very passionate about events. Long before my studies, I had already gained experience in the event sector and also organized international events in Dubai, Amsterdam and Istanbul during my studies.
The decisive moment for prioritizing events over other focal points of my studies such as marketing, advertising or HR was my internship in London. Here I was able to support the PR and event team of Fremantle Media in the organization of the 30th anniversary of the TV series Neighbours. It was a great event and the feedback of my work there showed me once again: I love to help people create unforgettable celebrations.
Why did you decide to study “Media and Business Psychology”? And what made you choose HMKW Berlin?
The emotional world of people has always touched me and to understand the psyche better has always fascinated me. During my school years I had therefore chosen psychology as a major subject and after school I wanted to pursue the study of human beings.
I ended up at HMKW because I wanted to start right away. Even if I had passed my Abitur with an A grade I would have had to try out other branches for another five years before I could have studied in Berlin.
