I would be very grateful for any tips regarding a room, preferably somewhere within bike distance to Somerville/ Cambridge.
My name is Tekla, I’m 25 years old. I will be in Boston for a research internship at the Harvard Medical School. I’m about to finish med school in Munich. Apart from that, I’m very active and love to be outdoors (hiking, biking or climbing), spending time with my small group or playing with my band at church, doing sports (basketball, ultimate), cooking or reading a good book. I worked the last semester in childcare at a primary school and am currently working on a project with three other students from all over Europe, trying to bring more sustainability into schools. Overall, I would describe myself as a sociable and neat person for cohabitation that also enjoys some quiet time. Over the years I have gained a lot of experience living in different countries and settings, from shared rooms and flats to host families and dorms.
Unfortunately I will only be in Boston until the end of October, as I have to go back to Munich by then. As most people are looking for year long leases in the moment, it is actually more difficult to find a short term lease than expected. So if anyone has a spare room or cupboard under the stairs – you would be my absolute hero.
Otherwise a friend of mine will be starting his internship at HMS in November, so if you would prefer a long term lease, he would gladly take over my room.
Wishing y’all a nice week. Looking forward to hearing from you!
