Karina Koelling

Karina-Koelling-BiographyHey! My name is Karina Koelling and I am 22 years old. I was born and raised in Hanover, Germany which is a city in the North of the country. After high school I did a volunteer year at the Montessori School in Hanover. This volunteer year was a lot of fun, but I realized that I do not want to work with children in the future. However, I knew that I love to travel and to speak English which is the reason why I decided to study International Tourism Studies. Therefore, I moved to Wernigerode in 2014 where I studied at Hochschule Harz for two years. Currently, I am participating in the double degree program at Southern Oregon University. I am studying Business Administration with a concentration on Hospitality and Tourism. As part of the double degree program, I will receive a degree from SOU and Hochschule Harz when I graduate.

A little bit more about me: I enjoy meeting my friends. I love hanging out with them or watching movies and TV shows together. Moreover, I love baking! Baking cakes, cookies and cupcakes calms me down after a stressful day and for me it is a lot of fun. Another passion of mine is traveling. I love exploring countries and cultures, eating foreign food and discovering new beautiful spots on the planet. Some of the countries I have visited so far are the United States, Spain, England, Ireland and South Africa. I would love to visit Australia and New Zealand which are on the top of my bucket list.
