About me

I am a business student from Berlin focused on sustainable, diverse practices.

Introduction

Hello, and welcome to my website! My name is Youjin Shin (신유진), a multi-lingual business administration student with a passion for bridging cultures and fostering strong relationships in the world of business. Born in Seoul, Republic of Korea, I am of Korean descent but hold German nationality. I currently reside in Seoul, South Korea, and frequently travel between Berlin and Seoul.

As a Business Administration student at the top-ranked Free University Berlin, I am committed to making a positive impact in the world of business. My language proficiency in Korean, German, French, and English has given me a unique perspective on international business relations and has allowed me to excel in various roles in the industry.

My professional experience ranges from translation services for renowned clients and companies to restaurant management at one of the leading eco-friendly Korean restaurants in Berlin. In each of these roles, I have focused on solving problems, maximizing customer satisfaction, and promoting sustainability.

When I am not busy with my studies or work, I am deeply involved in volunteering. I am a proud member of the United Nations Association of Germany, the Green Youth Party, and the Student Council of Free University Berlin, and recently joined the German Club Seoul. My dedication to these organizations reflects my commitment to making a positive difference in the world.

In addition to my passion for business and volunteering, I am an avid traveler and enjoy participating in student exchange programs. These experiences have allowed me to immerse myself in different cultures and broaden my horizons, both personally and professionally.
