goes into detail:
Born in Germany to an Albanian family, I grew up between cultures. Since 2003, I have worked as an intercultural trainer, consultant and coach and during this time have spent more than 7 years working abroad in various countries, including: Nicaragua, Spain and the UK. My training profile to date includes businesses, academia, educational institutions and NGO projects.
Train- the -Trainer
For the past 10 years I have been working as a facilitator involved in training other lecturers, teachers and trainers through “train the trainer” sessions. My work is driven by a desire to explore innovative and engaging teaching techniques and one of my key interests is designing and creating new training materials.
I have worked as teacher of intercultural didactics, German language and German culture in universities and other educational institutions for more than 20 years, both in Germany and abroad. Between 2008-2013 I was a lecturer in German language, literature and cultural history at the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) and since 2013 I have been an assistant lecturer in Intercultural Development and Didactics at Berlin’s Humboldt University.
Migration and Integration
Another area of particular interest to my work is the field of migration and integration. In addition to my activities as an intercultural trainer I have also coordinated different integration projects in Berlin and worked as a counselor for muslim immigrants, helping to challenge prejudice and build bridges between communities.
Education and Qualification
I graduated from Berlin’s Humboldt University with an undergraduate degree in German, American and British Literature and Culture. Since then I have received postgraduate certificates in both Adult Education and Teaching German as a Foreign Language, in addition to becoming an intercultural trainer and coach certified by the Artop Institut, which works in partnership with Berlin’s Humboldt University. In 2014 i got my certificate as mediator from the ImKonsens Institut in Berlin.
