International Relations & Student Manager
My name is Sophia Pasternack and I studied North American Studies, Education, and German as a Foreign Language at the University of Greifswald, Germany. I have been supporting the International Student Office team in student consulting, marketing and Social Media since May 2013.
My love story with North America began with an AuPair program right after I finished school and has been going strong ever since. That is why I chose to complete a Master’s program at the University of Connecticut from 2007-2009. These two years have been an absolute highlight in my life so far. I visited fascinating places, extended my knowledge in various fields, and met great people: Friends, experiences, and memories for life!
Living abroad for one semester or more is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity which I would love to make possible for others as well. This adventure definitely shows you a lot about yourself but also helps you establish an international network and a new home in another part of the world. Therefore I wish to assist students with their intentions of going abroad, to provide them with helpful information for their stays, and offer my best support in fulfilling their dreams.
