Who is your hero?
The woman I am named after: Henrik Ibsen’s Nora. And all the women who to this day fight for their place in the world.
About Nora Scholz
Before Nora Scholz joined the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt in November 2015, she gathered experiences in journalism through internships and freelance work. She wrote for the local desk of the Badische Zeitung about Black Forest heroes and rural cultural events, and gained insight into radio and television work at the SWR’s cultural channel and RTL 2, respectively. In addition, she was a regular contributor and editor for a Swiss-based business magazine.
Still, she did not feel like a journalist through and through and instead pursued her interest in strategic communication and organization. Working at the corporate publishing agency muehlhausmoers trained her eye for publication concept and design. While serving different clients in industry and culture, she also earned a master’s in art history.
Nora had already majored in art history, with a focus on architecture, and a minor in business adminstration, for her bachelor’s degree. She studied in Zürich, Freiburg and Berlin, and spent a semester abroad in Paris, where she also completed an internship at the Musée d’Orsay and was daily inspired by Courbet, Van Gogh, Monet & Co.
Born in Hamburg and raised in Cologne and in the San Francisco Bay Area, she now feels very much at home in Berlin-Charlottenburg.
