Nicole Ip  

My name is Nicole Ip.

I live in Würzburg, a small city in Northern Bavaria. I was raised in a rural village and studied protestant theology in Mainz and Hamburg.

After finishing my studies in 1999 I started working for the FSA.

I love working together with young people and with our host families.

Many visits to South Africa have made me fall in love with the amazing beauty of the landscape,  the strength of the people, the fascinating wildlife as well as the difficulties of the country.

I am married to a medical doctor. Our little chihuahua dogs Cupi and Chico complete our household.

I am responsible for the selection, preparation and care of the German pupils going to South Africa and the German host families including their young guests from South Africa in the following German states (provinces): Hamburg, Berlin, Thüringen, Hessen, Rheinland-Pfalz, Saarland, Baden-Württemberg und Bayern.
