Vanessa Bochenek, Study Abroad Coordinator

Vanessa grew up in a village near Heilbronn. Encouraged in her youth to travel as much as possible, she not only discovered other countries and cultures during family vacations, she also took advantage of student abroad programs during almost every year of her high school education and was already certain that she her future career would be in the tourism sector. One of her most memorable adventures was the month she spent in Taichung, Taiwan, where she encountered a completely new cultural and social world, one not like any other that she had experienced before.

After finishing high school, she moved to Wilhelmshaven to study Destination Management and Travel Operator Management as her major degree of study and Touristic Carriers as her minor. She will graduate in February 2020 from the Jade Hochschule.

She is excited to develop and organize similar programs during her internship placement at CEPA. Helping others positively experience our world’s wonderful diversity of cultures is what motivates her to work in this field.

Her native language is German, she is fluent in English, and has basic knowledge of Spanish.
