Hallo, herzlich willkommen! My name is Holly, and I am a 27-year-old alumna of Sonoma State University in California. I studied abroad in Tübingen, Germany, for the 2015-2016 school year through CSU IP‘s exchange program. I graduated from SSU in 2018 with bachelor’s degrees in Environmental Studies and German Cultural Studies, and with a minor in Biology. I am now working my way through a master’s degree program in Ecology, Evolution, and Nature Conservation at the Universität Potsdam in northern Germany.
The purpose of this blog was to document my experiences while abroad, but it has now been almost four years since that program ended. Now, I use this website to make general updates about my life and adventures with my husband, Kyle.
I appreciate and encourage any and all sorts of feedback or questions, so feel free to reach out at any time. Thank you for checking out my site!
Also, for my senior thesis at SSU, I created another website at The Green Why. Feel free to head on over there and learn a little bit about the differences and similarities in environmental outlooks between Germany and the United States.
