About Erica


Erica's story to Germany is one of determination and resilience. She arrived as an Au Pair with no connections and limited language skills, but with a clear goal: To make the most of this opportunity and strive for success. Her journey was not without its challenges. In order to finance her studies, she took on odd jobs, including cleaning houses, which allowed her to gain valuable insights into the differences in wealth and social class in Germany.


Despite facing 80 job rejections, Erica eventually landed a role in Germany's largest Investment bank, marking her entry into the corporate world and now works at one of the largest consulting firms in the world.​ However, her journey did not stop there as she navigated the challenges of being a young, foreign woman in a heavily male-dominated industry.


Despite these challenges, Erica persevered and rose to where she is today. She credits her success to her strong mental resilience and she believes that anything is possible with determination and hard work. Through sharing her story, she aims to inspire others to develop the mental resilience to reach their own goals and create their dream life.
