Graduate Amanda Thoet Turns Her German Minor to Good Use

Amanda Thoet has been using her German a lot since graduating from Penn State in May 2015 with a minor in German. She just finished her first year of her Master’s program at the BMW Center for German and European Studies at Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service. Prior to attending Georgetown, Amanda completed a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship in Leipzig, Germany and also spent summer 2016 as a speechwriting intern at the U.S. Embassy in Berlin. During summer 2017, Amanda is interning at the German American Chamber of Commerce in Denver, Colorado and is also participating in a DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) study trip on refugee integration in Germany. She will return to University Park on 22 September to take part in the Career Booster Day sponsored by the Goethe Institute.
