Meet Philly Yambo Makora, a Kenyan who studied Publizistik (Journalism) at the University in Mainz. Philly's passion to study in Germany started after learning German in Pangani high school in Kenya.
After joining Goethe Institut in Nairobi, Philly partnered with other students and formed the Deutschklub des Goethe Instituts. German language students could meet at the club to practice the language. One of the highlights from the club is when Philly and her team organised the 'Mr and Mrs Deutsch', a competition where different teams were given the assignment to present German states to the other club members. This helped the students to gather information about the culture among many other things.
Philly is currently working in the PR sector in Germany and she shared with us some tips on how to join this very competitive sector in Germany. Since Philly has a passion to write, she started a blog (www.yambomakora.com) where she writes about different ideas, thoughts and insights of daily life. Check it out. Philly shared her inspiring career path with us.
