Viva la Deutschland, Baby! with Marlene

Viva la Deutschland, Baby! with Marlene

Shortly after moving to Berlin, Marlene faced a series of serious challenges: housing insecurity, job insecurity, visa insecurity, health and mental issues, relationship difficulties, and financial problems.


Season 7, Episode 13. Marlene and Nicole met and became friends in Freiburg, where Marlene was getting her master's degree in the Global Studies Program. Shortly after finishing the degree, she moved to Berlin, and from the end of the program until today, she's faced a series of serious challenges: housing insecurity, job insecurity, visa insecurity, health and mental issues, relationship difficulties, and financial problems.

Plus, Marlene struggled with depression, and she also got diagnosed with ADHD. And she's one of those people who gets joy and happiness out of making someone else's day, but she lives in a country where the culture tends to be a bit more suspicious of strangers. Suffice it to say, she's been faced with plenty of problems, and then some, and she shares how she managed to push through to today, when things are starting to slowly look more stable.
