In Short

Laura is 24 years old and was born and raised in Aachen, Germany. Within 2,5 years, she moved to Michigan/Detroit, USA, with her family and lived there until she entered school, which she then completed in Pulheim, Germany. She studied in Koblenz, Cologne, and Maastricht.

Laura agrees with the statement: "Communication is key", and believes that by working in a team, it is possible to develop new solutions that are superior to the results of a single idea. Humans are capable of constructively redirecting the world if they focus properly and have the right attitude. The underlying creative processes that influence and shape the quality of a result do, however, differ between individual achievement and collective goals and direct solutions.

One-on-one brain mapping took place yesterday. Multidimensional perspectives are necessary for a dynamic and motivated team to realize its full potential. Together, a team with a genuine interest in learning, curiosity, and intellectual enrichment increases their value to the individual and the majority (Laura, 2022).
