Hi, I am Jenny and I live in Freiburg. I am German and just joined the elpha community. I work in ed-tech and digital (my strong suit is everything Storytelling) and am going to be a fulltime Freelancer from January onwards. I am passionate about teaching people stuff (online or through entertainment - I actually don’t care as long as I can wrap it in an appealing story) and am at the moment preparing my first seminar at a German university. Exciting times. So I am interested in getting to know other solo freelancers and people in storytelling and Ed tech or the XRealities. Or anyone in Freiburg and the area really. 😊

Hi, I'm Anami and I live in Berlin with my fiancee @sv . I'm interested in the crypto world and am working at Neufund (a blockchain-enabled financing marketplace) in business development. The job and role is new to me, as I come from finance. I'm also on a very long and slow road to learning Pythong thanks to Steph. :)I'm happy there's an Elpha community in Germany because the country still has a long way to go in terms of gender equality and racism. The wage disparities in Berlin between male and female software devs and other techies are huge - I hope we can improve that by supporting each other. I'm relatively new to the work force (graduated in '17), so any tips and help with regard to the work place are appreciated. I've already received some help from amazing Elphas and I'd like to pay it forward. I'm always happy to help with anything crypto or German-related, since I'm from here :)Much loveAnami

Hi all,very happy to have discovered elpha! Wanted to drop some lines to introduce myself.I am Katja, originally from Estonia but have been living in Berlin for a while already. Currently I am participating in Entrepreneur First program where I am trying to find a co-founder and build my own company. I am very interested in how in-siloed information can be shared across different industries/companies for their own benefit (can be fintech, cybersecurity, health tech). I am very keen to build something that will create value.Before I was a research engineer at Zalando doing machine learning for fraud prediction and in my previous life I used to work in the research as a bioinformatician.Will be glad to chat about any topic (and I am still searching for a co-founder ;) ) and also help with whatever I can in Berlin!Katja

Hi everyone, I've been living in Berlin since 2011, and now call it my home. I recently became a freelance data science consultant, after several years in start up management. I'm working on some independent projects, along side client work, and looking forward to sharing more of my work openly next year.In addition, I'm an active open source contributor, focusing on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in 2 of the largest Data Science Open Source Project, R and NumFOCUS. Happy to chat with you in English, or German (but please be patient with me, I'm not fluent yet).

Hello everyone,I am living in Ahrensburg, just outside of Hamburg, and have been living in Germany for the past two years. I work as a Technical Program Manager for Red Hat and have the privilege of working from home, which makes life with a toddler much easier.It's probably easier to get an idea of my professional interests from LinkedIn. For hobbies, I enjoy cooking, baking, travel, and organizing community events.Excited to meet all of you!Cheers,LHLeslie Hawthornhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/lesliehawthorn/

Hey January! Glad you are here :) Big congrats on completing your MBA, that is awesome. Regarding looking for your next opportunity, where are you living right now? Are you willing to relocate within DE? Knowing those answers might help other Elphas to refer you 👍
