My name is Jennifer Collins and this is my blog. Here's a bit about me: I'm from Dublin, Ireland. Upon completing my bachelor degree in Journalism and German at Dublin Institute of Technology, I worked as a reporter and arts and culture editor for Village Magazine, an Irish monthly current affairs publication. I have lived in Berlin for three and a half years, during which time I completed a Masters in Politics at the University of Potsdam. My interests include new media developments, politics, architecture and urban development, and tea.
