Awarded German Sports Fellow of the Year 2015

With the Deutsche Bank Sports Scholarship, the bank in cooperation with German Sports Aid (Stiftung Deutsche Sporthilfe) exclusively supports up to 400 collegiate athletes. Through the Scholarship, athletes receive essential financial aid for their academic studies. 

Every year, one of these athletes is awarded German Sports Fellow of the Year, recognizing excellent achievements in academia and top-level sport. This year’s award was announced during a ceremony on Sep 22nd in Berlin and I have indeed won the online voting!

I'm extremely honoured and still can't quite believe it myself. The award means very much to me, as it recognises the philosophy I am trying to represent: it is very well possible to combine University and sport!

A massive thank you to everyone who has voted for me and for everyone that has backed me on my way to combining University and sport!
