My way to the RUB

  • Since my change of club to TV Wattenscheid 01 in the summer of 2019, and with it a new place of residence, I feel connected to the city of Bochum. Because of the short journey, it was clear to me that I would study medicine at the RUB - one of the few universities in Germany with an integrated reform course.

When I think about studying and top-class sport

  • The two are not mutually exclusive, because with good time management, a healthy dose of ambition and the stamina of a middle-distance runner, success can be achieved in two ways. Thanks to the arrangements with the Dean of Studies, it is possible to make up individual events due to sporting commitments - a big thank you for that at this point!
