I consider myself a very social person and I really enjoy the possibility of learning new languages. I speak Spanish, English, German and willing to learn more as possible. Few years ago, I had the opportunity to have my exchange year after high school in Germany doing a volunteer with refugees, this experience focused and shaped my desires of helping people and I still want to continue learning and helping in different ways.

Belinda Antwiwaa Boateng 

Hello everyone, my name is Belinda Antwiwaa Boateng. I was born in Ghana and moved to Germany some years ago. I live in Hamburg and studying International Relations here in Kleve. I am very friendly and consider myself as a social person. I love having fun in my own ways and like to do things that will make me happy. I speak English, German and other Ghanaian languages like Twi and Ga. I am open to learn other languages as well.

Aqilah Isham 

Hey besties! My name is Aqilah and I am in my 4th semester of Sustainable Agriculture. I was born in Malaysia and was raised in Brunei, Netherlands, and Qatar, so I guess you could call me Mrs. Worldwide. I moved to Germany back in 2018 and somehow, I’m still here. I speak English, German, and Malay (but with a raging American accent). In an alternate universe, I’d like to think I’m fluent in Spanish, but one can only dream.

During my first semester, I was incredibly motivated to join the Welcome Centre as they were the team that I immediately encountered during Freshers' Week. As a struggling student myself, I completely understand what it feels like to be overwhelmed with visa inquiries, German documents, and the adapting process in a new city. This is where we, the Welcome Centre team, chime in! It brings me much joy to help, guide and support students through their inquiries and as a bonus, make a couple of friends along the way.

I look forward to meeting you in the office and talking up a storm!

Ali Ayan 

Hey there! I'm Ali Ayan, born in Karachi, Pakistan (home to snowcapped Himalayan peaks, rare markhors, and otherworldly rock formations), and raised in Dubai, UAE (city of skyscrapers, ports, and beaches, where big business takes place alongside sun-seeking tourism).

I'm studying B.Sc. Mechatronic Systems Engineering, here on campus Kleve at HSRW. Apart from Urdu (my mother tongue), I can speak English, Arabic and German.

Being an international student brings a lot of challenges and being one myself, I can completely relate to them, let it be in communication, cultural barriers, or adapting to new surroundings etc. (the list goes on….) Hence, with a creative spirit and an open-hearted nature, I would like to pass down the positive experience with you all. 

Feel free to contact us!

Michalina Bialek 

Hi there! My name is Michalina and I am studying Sustainable Agriculture here in Kleve. I come from Poland. I've only been living in Germany for a few of years, so my German skills are still a work in progress.

I am fluent in Polish and advanced in English, and I'm always looking for opportunities to use my language skills. I really enjoy being able to help people, whether it is through volunteering, tutoring, or simply having conversations with people, I find joy in being able to connect with others and lend a helping hand whenever possible.

Adina Musrepova

Hey everybody! My name is Adina and I’m from the heart of Kazakhstan, Almaty. I’m studying my Master in Sustainable Development Management. Being a Master degree student gives me a chance to help people struggling with getting into the university lifestyle using my (in granny’s voice) years of experience. I adore helping others hence why I chose the study program that builds on helping those that need it the most. I speak English, German, Russian, and Kazakh and I’m always trying to learn more about other people’s languages and cultures.

I did my bachelor's at the Kazakh-German university so studying in Germany has always been a dream of mine. For years I’ve been researching everything connected to being an international student in Germany so now I want to share this knowledge and help others on their journey. As an immigrant, it’s always hard to adapt to a new place. You have to make a completely foreign place your new home. So if you are struggling with that I understand you, I chose to be a tutor exactly because I know what it feels like and if I can help at least one person, it was all worth it.

Maria Alejandra Romero Sanclemente 

Hi everyone :) 

My name is Maria Alejandra Romero Sanclemente but most in HSRW know me as Mariale. I was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia, and speak Spanish, German, and English fluently. I moved to Germany already 4.5 years ago for my studies, being now in my 8th semester of the B.A. International Relations, and have a deep interest in helping students of our community to thrive.  To do so, I have gotten involved in many areas of our university. I have 1+ years of experience in our Welcome Centre and StuPa, and over 1.5 years of experience in the FSR S&E. 

I am very acquainted with the struggles of moving to a new place, intercultural exchanges, and adaptation as I have done an exchange program in high school, my Erasmus in Poland, and overall moved to a new continent for my Bachelor's degree. It can be challenging to find the right guidance points or straightforward information at the beginning, and the process can feel lonely and difficult. I would be happy to use my gained experience and knowledge to hopefully assist others and be an active part of positive change that empowers others, granting them the right tools to face potential challenges. 

All of us, tutors of the Welcome Centre, look forward to meeting you and assisting you in any way we can. Feel free to come by our office, email us, call us, or join one of the many events we organize for you.

Ludwig Leyna

Hello everyone, My name is Ludwig Leyna, a Mechatronics Systems Engineering student. I come from Tanzania (a very beautiful country in East Africa). I speak Swahili, English, and a little bit of German. I moved to Germany in 2021, this was my first time outside of my country (Tanzania) and it wasn’t easy to cope with everything (new culture, new language, new systems, new weather, etc.), at some point everything was overwhelming. It's a good thing that the Welcome Centre was there for me!

Being in Germany for some time has enabled me to understand the struggles and challenges faced by most international students and also native students, hence I am very glad to be part of the Welcome Centre since I will be able to directly assist students whenever they need help. Feel free to reach out to us, we are here for you!
