Herzlich Willkommen Kolja!

Kolja joins us as an intern. He is currently studying oceanography at the University of Hamburg in the second semester. He is planning to switch to studying law, beginning October this year.

We look very much forward to working with Kolja and have so many questions…


What was your first job?

I first worked in a dive center in Sardinia, Italy, where I accompanied and led scuba divers.


Breakfast or dinner?

I love to try new things while cooking, which for me is easier when cooking warm meals. I therefore prefer dinner.


What do you cook when you spontaneously have friends over for dinner?

Making pizza (together) is always a great choice.


Mountains or Seaside?

Best is both at once. But if I had to choose, I would pick mountains simply because of the amazing views.


If you could meet someone famous, dead or alive, who would it be?

I would love to meet some of the great prophets of religions such as Jesus, Muhammad or Buddha, simply to see what they were like and why people were so fascinated by them.


Which was your favorite place to live so far?

I got to spent three months in New Zealand for a student exchange and I loved the nature, the Maori culture and the general kindness of the people.


Digital or analogue?

Analogue. I like to disconnect every now and then to spent time with my friends and family.


Favorite time of day?

Morning is my favorite time because the whole day still lies ahead, and I am (at best) rested and motivated.


Window or aisle seat?

Window seat. I like to look outside or be able to lean against the window to rest or sleep.


Country you wish to visit?

I would really like to visit Norway to see the Fjords, feel the changes in daylight and maybe even be able to catch a glimpse of the northern lights.


What song will always get you on the dancefloor?

A song that will always get me dancing is Seeeds “Ding”, but really just any Seeed or Peter Fox song.


Biggest pet peeve?

A thing that really annoys me is people playing loud music in a crowded train / train station.


Most played on your music playlist right now?

Schmyts album “Universum regelt”.


Favorite (public) holiday?

Christmas. I like to get together with my family.


Last new thing you learned?

To solve a pyramid shaped rubik´s cube


Which movie can you watch over and over?

Christopher Nolans “Interstellar”. I find it truly fascinating how it manages to connect physical theories to great storytelling and breathtaking images.


Three words to describe Berlin?

Diverse, crowded, home.


Night owl or early bird?

Early bird, even though I do like to sleep in sometimes.


Favorite pizza topping?

Rucola and Parmesan.
