My Voice Experience

I worked about 8 years as a public-relations officer for a German NGO - the position included local radio broadcasting every week (writing and speaking broadcasting manuscripts, conducting live interviews, moderation, presenting topics, people and organisations on air).

Furthermore I set up a school-radio for a German whole-day school and gave radio workshops at Wiesbaden‘s Children’s Media University. In 2003, I was awarded a prize in the category best-practice education projects by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Development for my conception
and project „radio broadcasting for young people and pedagogical multipliers".

Additionally, I wrote and spoke broadcasting manuscripts of health themes for the AOK-radio service (a big German health insurance). Following these links, you will find two mp3 voice samples of it:
