During my time at TUM.ai, I have mainly focused on the culture project, which aims to establish a culture for the initiative in close communication with a number of members. For all of you out there that are not from the techy area, you too have a place in this student initiative, and that your skills will be appreciated and put to good use here.

At TUM.ai, I work closely with designers to develop content, maintain TUM.ai’s social media channels, and deliver AI Newsflash. Before joining TUM.ai, I participated in the Makeathon, where I worked in a team to develop an AI solution. Joining TUM.ai gave me the chance to connect with other AI enthusiasts and hone my intercultural skills.
