OK, so I have had a ton of media experience in the U.S. because of my entrepreneurial activities, the highlight last year including a 2-3 minute live interview on CNN!

Riding on the train this morning, everyone was reading the paper and a couple people, hearing my English, could draw the connection between the person in the picture and the person sitting in the train. I can’t actually read my quote, since it’s in German (an immensely frustrating experience that I went through last year with articles in French and Chinese about my activities). But, if you know any German, here’s a pic of me and the blurb in German:
