Initially, just like everyone else – it was a subject like any other. Then I went on to study German and politics at Leeds. I started translating before I’d even graduated. I first lived in Bonn for two years, then later a year and a half in Hamburg. My now-husband and I moved to Berlin back in 2013. We had considered moving to the UK at one point, but then Brexit happened. So for now, we’ve settled here and I’ve obtained German citizenship.
