Why is there no Silicon Valley in Europe? is the question I am trying to explore in this article that was published by the Huffington Post Germany in September 2014.

Professor Everett, teacher at Georgetown and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy offers his view on the German Energy policy. It was published by the Huffington Post Germany in January 2015. The English version is published here.

  •  MUT abc für Zivilcourage. Ein Handbuch gegen Rechtsextremismus

Mut_ABCVon Januar bis Mai 2008 habe ich als Redakteurin bei der Webseite www.mut-gegen-rechte-Gewalt.de gearbeitet, einer Webseite, die vom Magazin Stern und der Amadeu-Antonio-Stiftung gegründet wurde. Eine tolle Zeit mit meinem journalistischen Mentor Holger Kulick, der mir die besten Seiten Berlins gezeigt hat. Dieses Buch ist ein Ratgeber für all die Mutigen, die sich rechter Ideologie entgegenstellen wollen oder müssen. (Erhältlich bei Amazon)

This booklet is a guide for all those people that are looking for creative ways of how to cope with political extremism. It was published by the Amadeu-Antonio-Foundation, where I had been working as a reporter for six months in 2008. There is no English version available, maybe that should go in my ToDo-List.

Drei Wochen, 20 Nachwuchsjournalisten: Berlin, Potsdam, Gefechtsübungszentrum, Flug mit der Transall nach Pristina, fünf Tage im Lager der Bundeswehrsoldaten, vier Tage zum Schreiben in der Sanitätsakademie in München. Das Ergebnis: Tolle Geschichten, ein Journalistenpreis und für mich eine sehr prägende Erfahrung, die mein Bild der Bundeswehr als auch der Deutschen Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik geprägt hat.

Three weeks with 20 journalists in training: from political headquarters to fighting preparation to Pristina, Kosovo, where we spent five days with the German soldiers. A humbling experience.

India

I have been writing so much for work that my private headlines are not really the most creative. But this one sums it up pretty well. Pouya, me, India.

Naturally, the minute I told my body I am going on vacation it went into sick-mode, not only do I have  cold, but also a nasty inflammation in my wrist, but I strongly believe in the Indian healing powers. And in Ibuprofen 🙂

So, summed up in short, this trip is means a lot to me: It will be another wedding experience, this time in Bangalore. I am very excited to see my Fletcher friend Aditya again. The younger generation of the wedding party will then move on towards Goa and beach for a bit. Moving on from the South, we will be doing a stopover in Delhi and see the couple whose wedding brought me to India this past January, Jessica and Abhishek.

And then it is time for a big item on my bucket list: Ever since I saw the Himalayan peaks from Mussorie in January I have been thinking about that place and how I felt. It is hard to explain, but I felt complete. This time, it will be a little longer. We will be doing a five day trek, in the snow, with a big backpack, lots of emergency drugs (the German doctors needed some serious persuasion to give out some of these prescriptions; a little bit of Googling has confirmed my funny jokes about how these drugs are most likely available somewhere over the counter…). I have a lot of respect for the fast altitude gain and I hope I am trained well enough. I guess there is only one way to find out…

And then it will be time for catching up with more Fletcher friends in New Delhi, eating as much Dhal, Palak Paneer, buttered chicken and drinking so much Masala Chai that I can at least stay for a little while without graving the food that is simply unavailable where I currently am.

I will try to keep you updated with lots of pictures and little stories.
