When I look back, I don’t regret my move to Aachen. Every step of the way, there were people beside me who helped me overcome all the obstacles. Today, I feel right at home in “my” Frankenberger Viertel, that part of Aachen where the people are so relaxed and unconventional. And sometimes I even find myself searching for the Alemannia results on teletext – and I’m not the least bit interested in soccer!
