Fabian is an Economics student at the University of Mannheim, Germany graduating in 2017. Being especially interested in Macroeconomics and Finance he wants to achieve higher education in those fields. As Fabian enjoys cultural diversity and follows current political developments he wanted to take action tackling the refugee crisis. This made him become a Co-Founder of Connect. Connect enriches cultural diversity and fosters sympathy between refugees and university students offering a platform for cultural and linguistic exchange. Connect reduces the inhibition to get involved and consequently shows the potential of being involved. Teaching and learning at the same time makes this project beneficial for students and refugees.
Fabian’s long-term goal is to proof that passion in financial issues and taking social responsibility, encouraging positive change are no contradictions at all. In contrast, those fields complement each other in various different aspects.
