Ute loves to share her passion for Lifelong Intercultural Learning.

Long ago, when her high school teacher told her parents that Ute would never be able to speak a foreign language, she knew that mastering the seemingly impossible is what motivates her.
Today, as a German-born, Canadian citizen with a Mexican heart, she raises her bi-racial children in a multicultural environment. Ute is dedicated to fostering the Art of Living and Working Together in constructive harmony.
