Born and raised in Berlin, Lovis Zahn is in his last semester at Leiden University majoring in International Studies with a minor in European Studies. After having spent a semester abroad at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, in which his interest in the Middle East was rekindled, he identified together with friends a gap between university applicants and their university choices and went on to co-found GradUp, a student consulting service in education, which aims to match university applicants with their most suitable studies and university. Interning at ASF Deutschland, Lovis helped to organize a summer camp in Berlin for Detroit youth, associated with Growing Together Detroit, volunteered in Washington Heights in New York City with Holocaust survivors and other elderly residents, and worked as a student consultant for Damco. After Leiden, Lovis plans to gain further work experience in the Berlin area through internships before he applies for graduate studies.
