About Yolanda

Yolanda was born and raised in Berlin and "Ich bin ein Berliner!" is her favorite quote. After graduating from school, she took an exciting gap-year for some travels and internships.

Currently she studies American Studies and Social Sciences at the Humboldt University and lives in Schöneberg. Read her blog to get a taste of Berlin at its best.
