Who’s 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 cultural channel of the Südwestrundfunk (SWR) and RTL 2, respectively. In addition, she was a regular contributor and editor for a Swiss-based business magazine.
Still, she did not feel a journalist through and through and instead pursued her interest in strategic communication and organization. At the corporate publishing agency muehlhausmoers, she trained her eye for publication concepts and designs. There, she worked for different clients in industry and culture while also studying for a master’s in art history.
For her bachelor’s degree, she majored in art history, with a focus on architecture, and a minor in business adminstration. 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, raised in Cologne and the San Francisco Bay Area, she now feels at home in Berlin-Charlottenburg.
