Motivation

Christian enjoyed being an assistant teacher when he studied at DTU; applying what he learned from that subject as well as giving something back to the newer students. A few years back Christian also had the privilege of being a mentor to a newly graduated DTU student and found that rewarding. He still helps the alumni from time to time discussing e.g. career options. Overall he would like to continue giving something back to the community.
