About this project

About 30 years ago, two zis scholarships helped me to broaden my horizon, expand my understanding of what is possible, and develop more self-confidence. zis is a non-profit organization that has been awarding scholarships for study trips to young people between the ages of 16 and 20 for more than 60 years. Today, the word we use for tenacity and grit is resilience - and I've made it my profession, to help managers around the world to develop more of this inner power.
In retrospect, the experiences I've had on these trips to Scotland and Iceland have been priceless for my development. After having had a childhood with some challenges, I learned that I could cycle 1,400km on my own and get wet every day without despairing. I have learned that I was able to get along with only 300 € for 4 weeks and still had a good time. I have learned what it's like to be threatened with deportation and how to get an interview with the President from such a crisis. I have understood that limitations are primarily constructed in our heads, and I want to make these insights available to as many adolescents as possible.
Therefore, in June 2021, I will cycle about 3,000 km from Luebeck (Germany) to the North Cape (Norway) to raise money for zis. The route takes me this time alongside the Swedish coastline of the Baltic Sea. A scholarship including mentoring costs just 900 €. My goal is to raise money for at least 30 scholarships, i. 27,000 €. Please support this initiative with your donation. Thank you very much!
