Run for Executive Organizer!
Having organized the UC Freiburg students for the past academic year, Charlotte will hand over her position to the next motivated student!
Charlotte, why would you recommend this post to anyone?
You collect all the information from the other students’ offices and have your own separate meetings with Nicholas so since knowledge is power… Just kidding. It’s nice to be involved. Not only consume the study program, but shape it.
Do you have a fair warning for anybody doing the job?
It’ll be work, especially if you have motivation to actually do something. It’ll be the weight of responsibility, which can be inspiring but also pressuring sometimes. But it’ll be worth it and you sure will learn quite a bit.
What have you learned, in particular?
To deal with WordPress in managing this site, for example. Or how to conduct a fake interview with yourself.
What was your best moment as EO?
Sitting in a conference with the Advisory Council of the UCF, basically a bunch of really important people, discussing our program, its difficulties and how to make it better. And actually being able to contribute a sentence.
What do you do to distract yourself from University stress?
When it’s bad, eat chocolate and watch stupid stuff on the internet. When it’s really bad, I bake cakes. Even at 2 o’clock in the morning. Makes me feel like I’m doing something, even though it utterly fails to reduce the to-do-list. And it’s delicious. Well, sometimes.
What is your recommendation when in Freiburg?
Eat lots of IceCream, and go hiking.
Where do we encounter you in 10 years? Any profession in mind?
Who made up such stupid questions anyway?
Justified critique. Ok, so last but not least; what is your favorite mathematical symbol?
I used to be very fascinated with π. Isn’t it incredible that such a weird number, infinite and ultimately indefinable, should describe the most perfect and in many ways most basic form of our universe? Also, my math teacher during my exchange year in the US brought us a pie on the 13th of April (get it?) so yeah, that really convinced me.
