Nora Lessing, Taipei (Taiwan)

My life motto? Stay unsettled! For example, my life has taken me abroad for longer periods at various times over the last ten years, to places including Australia, India, and South Africa. I am currently living and studying in Taipei, Taiwan, and enjoying the good weather, friendly people, and creative variations on “stinky” tofu. Before this, I studied science journalism in Dortmund and literature, anthropology, and religion in Berlin. I am 28 years old and am currently working my way toward a master’s in literature.
