My name is Katharina Felicitas Westphal or depending what country I am in its Kati (for the Germans) Katie (for the Americans), and my least favorite Kathy (which all Swiss seem to write it like this). I was born and raised in Germany with my wonderful family. When I started the 4th grade my family moved to Kansas City. That's right middle of America. Ill put a map in below for those of you who don't know where its located. (don't worry...it happens ALOT) Here we not only had a lot of humidity and heat during the summer, but here I have my extended family, my closest friends.
During my studies I studied in Angers, France to improve my french. Another enriching period in my life. After that I went back to Kansas City to finish my studies. At one point or another my parents retired and several years later they made their homes in New York and Germany. Although having my best friends in KC, I always felt I wanted to go elsewhere, primarily somewhere in Europe. So when the offer came about I moved myself to Switzerland (with the help of my wonderful parents) and started somewhat of a life there.
Actually pretty quickly I started my life because I met my incredible boyfriend, Cedric, about a month after I got to Switzerland. Since then we have been together and this is the reason why I stayed in this area. Instead of going to Zurich to finish my studies, I stayed here in Crans Montana, to go to the hotel school Les Roches. And here I am about to finish my masters in business and administration, we just moved into a house, my parents are thrilled, Prada my parrot moved here and we just found a little kitten named Irish (french pronounciation).
This is how I have arrived where I am..
