Vincent is a final-year student of International Relations and Arabic at the University of St Andrews. He is originally from Berlin, but spent the last five years working and studying in Egypt, Scotland, Morocco and Sudan.
Vincent’s experiences living and traveling abroad encouraged him to pursue a path through life that challenges both his own perceptions and perspectives as well as those of others in a creative and stimulating way, for he believes that it is only through exchanging experiences, thoughts and beliefs that we can bring about change in a world full of stereotypes and stigmatization. In 2013, Vincent completed his first documentary film “For Bread, Freedom and Social Justice”, which he shot while living in Egypt in the year following the 2011 uprising.
Since 2014, Vincent has become a fellowship holder at the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes, the largest and oldest of the organizations in Germany that provide scholarships for highly gifted students.
