“I lived on an army base (in Germany), and I was really little so we spoke mostly English. I really wish I had learned German because I had a really good habit … of wandering off from my parents and getting lost. That happened at a German boat festival, so I was wandering around pulling on people jackets saying, ‘Can you help me find my mommy?’ And they would talk to me in rapid-fire German and I would think they were yelling at me because German kinda sounds scary.” -Niki Alden ’18
