What does empowerment mean to you?
For me, empowerment means having the freedom and power to control what happens in my personal life.

Do you have a role model who inspires you and why?
I believe there is an inspiring spirit inside of every person which can lead everyone. The unconscious inside of me inspires me in very many ways.

What do you like about Kiron?/What does Kiron mean to you?
Kiron has guided me in my online study goals, which has really helped me.

What do you want to achieve with Kiron/what are your learning goals?
Kiron allows me to study political science. In this case, it helped keep me engaged when I was far from university and had to wait to get a residence permit.

What challenges are you facing?
I faced very many challenges in my life because of my job as a writer and journalist, but the most important challenge which I’ve faced in Germany is applying for a place at university.

What are your plans for the future?
My plan for the future is to continue studying political science and working in politics.

What are your best experiences with the Volkswagen buddy program?
It was a great experience. We visited the factory but the best part was that I got to meet fellow female students in this campaign.
