Six years ago, I came to Germany for a visit and little did I know I would end up staying here permanently. I would have never guessed back then, that a few years down the road I would land a job at one of the top airlines in the world, Lufthansa.

After deciding to stay in Germany, I pursued my Master’s Degree in International Economics and Public Policy at The University of Mainz. Among the completion of my program, I knew that I really wanted to work for Lufthansa, but I never thought I would end up being part of such an amazing program like ProTeam.

Since joining ProTeam, I have been given the opportunity to explore different areas of the Lufthansa Group by working on projects for Cargo, Technik, and Passage. We are basically given the freedom to choose four projects, one of which takes place abroad. For my project abroad I ended up going to Singapore for three months, where I supported Lufthansa Technik Corporate Sales for Asia Pacific.  Aside from that experience abroad, all 12 of us ProTeamers spent one month in India working on different social businesses. I can honestly say that this program has not only prepared me for my future career at the LH Group, but also helped develop my personal strengths. Throughout the program we also received change management training and personal coaching. I must say I can’t  imagine any other place where I would want to be right now in my career and I am quite curious where my journey is headed.
