In his undergraduate studies, Brett sought an end goal of starting a career in a German-speaking country, though education was not his expected field. He studied environmental science with a focus on food systems policy and incorporated German as a minor. His interest in teaching comes from a background in youth work, primarily from his time as a summer camp counselor in Massachusetts. The camp is attended by high school students, and he hopes to find success working with a comparable crowd in Klagenfurt. Brett hopes to gain insight by working with youth in a more formal environment and sees a potential career in teaching or social work. Perhaps he will pivot back towards environmental work. Or maybe he will figure out a way to be a camp counselor forever. This will be Brett’s second extended stay in Europe, having previously spent a summer working in Munich, Germany. Having spent most of his life in university towns—growing up on Penn State’s main campus and attending the University of Michigan—Brett expects to find a suitable home in Klagenfurt.
