Traveler Bio

Guten tag! (Hello!)

My name is Sally Ernst, and I am so excited to meet you! I am 20 years old and come from Carmel, Indiana, which is just north of Indianapolis. I have four younger siblings, two cats and a dog, all of whom I love very much! Some of my favorite hobbies include hiking, riding my bike, reading, listening to music, watching movies and traveling all over the world.

I go to school at Ball State University, where I study German education and ESL. I have been learning German since the sixth grade, and have wanted to be a teacher ever since I was little, so being a German teacher has been my dream job for a long time. This is my second year of college, and I am spending it at the University of Mainz in Mainz, Germany. I hope that my experiences studying abroad will help me be the best teacher I can possibly be.

I can't wait to share all the things I learn about German people and culture with you this year. Are you ready for an adventure? Let's go!
