My name is Jessica Bucher (20). I am from Munich and I live in Maastricht since August 2009. I am a freshman at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, where I study European Studies. After my graduation from school I did an apprenticeship as “Patentanwaltsfachangestellte” for two years in an intellectual property law firm, which gives me a background in patent and trademark law. I am interested in foreign languages, travel and intercultural relations. In my professional future I would like to work in journalism, if possible as a foreign correspondent. Besides writing, I love to read and some people would even describe me as book-obsessed. But that does not mean that I spend most of the day in my room, as I also do sports like swimming and jogging and I like to dance.
