Sara: “Hi everyone, I’m Sara and I am an American living in Germany. On my youtube channel, Bay to Bayern, I particularly like to talk about my experiences going to university in Germany for my masters degree and compare and contrast American and German culture. I hope that I can inspire others to explore other opportunities for higher education.”
