Each week, we ask one of our new fun-loving exchange students to share a little about themselves and the most revealing question of all, what’s in your backpack?

This week, Ronny Siegel, from Germany, gives us a peek into his green, Berghaus DayPack:

What school are you on exchange with and how long will you be at Thunderbird?  

I am an exchange student from Mannheim Business School in Mannheim, Germany. Unfortunately, my classmate, Susanna, and I are only here for one module and will leave you soon, in March.

What is your favorite part of Thunderbird so far?

The students and educational staff. The spirit and power they create is amazing and directly made me feel like a real T-Bird. Special thanks to the Rugby team – you guys are awesome, thanks for the good time with you.

What are you hoping to do when you leave Thunderbird and graduate?

I have a big advantage as my former company still pays my salary. I will take some time off and travel around and maybe visit some of you around the world.

What are the three most interesting things in your backpack?

My camera, laptop and tripod to gather as many impressions as possible while I am here.
