My name is Pasqualina and I am 27 years old. I originally come from a small town in the province of Salerno, Italy. I studied Comparative Literature and Culture, along with the German, Hungarian and other languages…

One of the reasons that prompted me to stay in Germany was work. In Italy it is very difficult to find employment nowadays, especially if you come from the humanities field.  In Göttingen, where I reside now, I started a PhD program, which is not funded by any scholarship. To be a student in Germany means that you can actually afford the tuition fees (they are a lot less than in Italy) and that you have access to a lot of services.
