Ariane comes to the Commission from Germany as an intern through Experience International.
She graduated from high school in 2013 and started her apprenticeship in fruit growing on an orchard near Hanover. She has experience in growing apples, pears, cherries, strawberries and peaches. In 2015 she finished her apprenticeship and traveled to New Zealand to visit fruit growers there. "It was a very interesting time. I was impressed by the different orchard dimensions compared to Germany. Furthermore, I Iearned a lot about the management of an orchard."
Ariane is looking forward to learning about growing fruit in the US. In addition she is excited to get to know the American lifestyle and to travel along the west coast during her spare time. She likes hiking and cycling and would like to learn to play basketball.
