Meet Sonia, a 4th Year Student in IRD

My interest in environmental sustainability all started here at Schiller when I took a course on sustainable development with Professor Regis Maubrey. As part of the course, each student was assigned a research project. In my case, environmental issues affecting the Sahel region. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the course, and have since decided I would like to work in the field of environmental sustainability. At Schiller, you know you are learning from Professors with rich backgrounds in their domains. Prof Maubrey’s extensive experience in teaching as well as working and setting up NGOS in the African continent reassured me that I too could attain great things.

Whilst studying at Schiller I was able to attend both Cop20 and Cop21 events. This was a dream come true for me as I sat amongst great world leaders making decisions on a global scale. I am now undergoing a 1 month internship in Abuja in Nigeria as assistant to the Climate Change Specialist at the Ministry of Environment. With the flexible course structure Schiller offers, I was able to accept this amazing opportunity without disrupting my studies. I am very proud to be a product of this university.
