Student of the Month - Nelli Böhm
Nelli Böhm is an exchange student from Cologne, Germany. She is a 3rd-year student of Business Administration at Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University. Before she entered university, she worked as a customer service manager for four years in a mid-size company in Cologne.
Nelli loves travelling. In her free time she travels with her two older sisters in Germany and overseas. “It makes me happy to meet people of different cultural backgrounds,” she explains. She chose to study in Korea because of her personal interest in Korean culture which she learned from watching Korean dramas and listening to Korean music. She chose KNU because it is known for its global orientation. She saw that KNU offers English lectures on business and Korean culture. In addition, KNU offers opportunities to meet other international students through trips and other activities; thus, she could create an international network. Her decision to study at KNU was finalized when she read the interesting reports of former KNU exchange students from her university.
During her first semester in KNU, she joined a lot of activities. Together with her friends from Korea, the Philippines and India, they formed a group and participated in the 2013 KNU User-created Content (KUCC) video contest. Over 100 groups applied but only around 40 groups passed the application and were asked to create a video. From 40, only ten videos were picked to compete for the final round. Nelli’s group named “Guten Tag 친구” won the grand prize. “This was one of the best moments in my first semester.”
In her second semester, she was selected as a member of KNU Student Ambassador (KSA).  Through this organization she learned a lot about organizing events, brainstorming ideas, and improving teamwork skills. The most memorable part of being a member of KSA was meeting the wonderful people whom she worked with for one semester. “I will never forget our KSA meeting every Tuesday evening,” she says, “At first I thought it’s impossible for me to work with them because I can’t speak Korean really well. However, the members tried their best to communicate with me and I really appreciate their efforts.”
Aside from studying, travelling, and working as a KSA member, Nelli also participated in an internship program at Korea General Auto Parts Co., Ltd. She worked as a sales assistant of the export department. She was tasked to look for potential buyers abroad. “It was a great opportunity to improve my business English skills,” she says, “I was also able to attend an international auto parts exhibition in Busan.”
In the future, Nelli wants to have a successful career in human resource management, her area of interest in business. She also wants to meet the friends she met at KNU in their home countries. “Coming to Korea and studying in KNU is the best decision I’ve made in my university life,” she continues, “My second best decision was to extend my stay in KNU for one semester longer.” She considers this one year in KNU as the most interesting experience in her whole university life so far.
