Milena Kagel is an alum of Oberlin College, where she studied history, German, and Russian. She graduated cum laude after completing an honor's thesis on the history of youth correctional facilities in the German Democratic Republic. In 2018, Milena spent one year studying at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich, which gave her the opportunity to both improve her academic German and her ability to understand regional dialects. She is delighted to return to Europe and looks forward to sharing her interest in language-learning and cultural exchange with her students in Austria.
