The First Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in African Studies

Leonhard Hager

My name is Leonard but my friends call me Leo, meaning lion in Latin. The name suits me because I pursue everything that I put my mind to. My parents seemed to have known this intuitively.

I love Africa! I left Germany in 2011 and have lived in Kenya for eight years, learned the culture and people and absolutely identify myself with the African lifestyle. I studied Journalism in Nairobi and got my Bachelor’s degree in 2018 and worked as a freelance photographer for four years.

I never pictured doing a Master’s degree in the field of African Studies but my life has taken me to Africa from a tender age and my heart wants to return. When I came across the EIMAS program I realized that I want to work in a field related to Africa, since I have a passion for Africa, the culture, the history and the people.

I do not know where exactly this journey is leading me to but I am confident that EIMAS will lay out a path for me that I can pursue. I have been working in Marketing and Sales for the past two years, which is not in line with this program but I am convinced that due to my personal background this is the perfect fit for me.
