UNCG’s 2019-20 DAAD Young Ambassador

  Bethann Odell
  Home University: University of North Carolina at Greensboro
  Major: Consumer Apparel Retail Studies
  Program/University in Germany: Universität Mannheim

“Hi! My name is Bethann Odell and I am a senior at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I am majoring in Consumer, Apparel, and Retails Studies as well as German, and minoring in International and Global Studies. I was fortunate to have studied abroad in Mannheim for the fall 2017 semester. During this time I took classes in business and German at Universität Mannheim. My experience was life changing and provided a new insight to my major classes taught back home. Prior to this study abroad experience, I had been exposed to Germany through my father and his service in the US Army. My dad took me to Germany after graduating high school and I knew then that it was a place I wanted to return to. I then took a weeklong course in Berlin through a faculty-led study abroad program at UNC Charlotte. After transferring to UNC Greensboro I went with the Bryan School of Business to Brussels, Belgium and worked on entrepreneurship projects with students from the Université catholique de Louvain. These experiences leading up to my semester abroad really tuned me into my passion for travel and sharing that with other people. Studying in Germany has actually connected me to people I would have never dreamed of and opened doors for me personally and professionally. As a DAAD Young Ambassador I hope to connect people and their passions to Germany and see them experience the same life changing, positive outcomes that I have had (and am continuing to have!)”
