"Hallo! My name is Kelsey. I'm in the German LIC program with a minor in Economics. I've transferred from Central Maine community college to come here. I've lived in Maine for most of my life so Michigan is a big change for me. I came here because German isn't readily accessible in Maine and I have some family here in Michigan I felt that Eastern would be a great opportunity for me. My long term goal would be to become a Translator for a company or organization.

I've studied German in 6th grade all the way up till my sophomore year of high school, after the long break my love for the German language and culture has brought me back. I'm about to complete German 122 and look forward to studying abroad this summer!"  April 2017
