Name: Annika Schiefner
Function: Integration Manager
Nickname: Pfanni, because I am from a region that doesn’t make a difference between the pronunciation of F and Pf in German. My linguist friends thought that was funny and gave me a nickname I have trouble pronouncing…
Country of origin: Germany
Languages spoken: German, English, Dutch, French, Spanish, NGT
Study Programme: ReMa Language and Communication
Tell us 2 fun facts about yourself: I have a fructose intolerance but I really love mangos (and other fruit). So, I sometimes I eat mangos (and other fruit) that are not fully ripe yet because they have less sugar. Also, I was born second closest to Nijmegen but I am not a Dutchie.
Favorite word: I am a linguist. I don’t have a favorite word. I don’t discriminate against words.
Favorite pasta sauce: Fried-vegetables-cream-sauce (or something like that)
Favorite cake: Schlonztorte
Next country in your bucket list: Chile
What do you do when you’re not at university?
If I am not at uni, I am in the fantasy world in my head, living fantastic adventures. (Or, as others might put it, I’m in my bed, sleeping and dreaming.)
Favorite spot in Nijmegen: Waalstrandje, most likely swimming
Have you ever spent a semester or year abroad? If so, where?: Québec, Canada. But I also lived in Spain and Colombia for a few months.
Can you tell us one reason why you wanted to join ISN Nijmegen CS: Because I think everybody should have the chance and get the support they need to make the most out of their stay abroad.
