Journalistic Work

For more than 8 years, I have been involved in professional writing by working in a variety of positions in Germany and the USA.

In February 2014, I started a 2-week internship in the online department of Pforzheimer Zeitung, the local newspaper of my hometown. I got very enthusiastic about it and got hired after my internship as freelancer for independent online writing and editing, e.g. on the weekends. In 2016, I started contributing to the sports departments after another internship. I was also a copywriter for a travel agency during my time in Frankfurt.

When I got to the United States, I started focusing on bettering my writing skills in the English language by working as reporter & eventually News Editor for The Southwestern, SWOSU's student news site. In summer 2022, I conducted an internship for The Lawton Constitution. Although more a hobby, I also write articles for my own satire news website Morning News Tonight.
