Parkinson’s is a serious disease that affects the way how you move parts of your body. The disease is due to problems with certain nerve cells in the brain. These nerve cells are usually producing the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is important for the transmission of the information of how muscles should react and therefore how parts of the body should move. It is still unknown what exactly is causing Prakinson’s.

Kilian is an open-minded person who loves the warmth of the summer and the sun. But unfortunately, as a German student at the City University of Bremen, you won’t get a lot of it. So, he took the chance to complete a study abroad in Malta and one year later an internship! His passion is creative work and that contains making films, photography and of course writing articles. His passion for creativity is reflecting in the types of drinks he likes - Cocktails and Gin. One of his indulgence is professional DJ’ing in Germany and of course Malta.
