Anja Berger

Anja Berger has studied Political Science and Languages in Düsseldorf and Rome and also lived in France for some months. She has the impression that even if as Europeans we are living in everyday contact with people from our neighbour states, there is still some lack of comunication and understanding between the single nationalities. She currently lives and works in Rome.

Europe & Me’s mission is to "make Europe personal". Too many associate European news with dry politics and bureaucracy. We aim to change that. E&M is an online lifestyle magazine created by young Europeans for young Europeans. Since the publication of our first issue in July 2008, we have been writing about every possible "Europe" – the Europe of young master's students, the Europe of Chernobyl survivors, the Europe of the European Commission, the Europe of immigrants and the Europe of ex-pats.
