Things I’ve Learned from Living in Germany

Being in a new place is always an adjustment and learning experience. Germany is no exception. Since being here, I’ve had days where I feel the high’s of seeing new things and navigating unfamiliar territory. There are other days where I feel the lows of not being able to understand everything. I feel the urge to make petty complaints about the lack of black hair products or specific foods I crave at the grocery store. It’s human nature to search for familiarity, right? The reality is that in foreign counties it’s not always that easy. All of these things have been great experiences in refining my character and exersizing a “glass-half-full” mentality.


All Things Berlin: Pt 2

Reichtag Dome

It’s been a little over a month in Berlin and so much has happened! I’ve finally completed a production of Suor Angelica with the Berlin Opera Academy!!! Rehearsal’s were really hectic so it’s been a struggle finding time to shoot for the blog, but we make it do what it do!!! Since my last post I’ve observed even more about German culture and city life in Berlin


All Things Berlin

Berliner Dom

This summer I was blessed with the opportunity to sing with the Berlin Opera Academy in their production of Suor Angelica. In the midst of being crazy busy with long rehearsals, I’ve gotten to steal some time to explore the city and experience the vibe of the German capital.


Paris in 48 Hours

This spring break was a whirlwind and I was blessed with the chance to travel to France for a brief taste of the city. Though I only got to spend two days in the “City of Light”, it didn’t take long to fall in love with this city and it’s mix of romantic and historic charm. The game plan was to choose 3-4 places to see and leave a little flexibility to explore off the beaten path rather than trying to cram every monument into a short window of time.
