Pauline Belz

Born in Germany and raised in Austin, Texas, Pauline grew up immersed in two languages and cultures. She learned English at age three and since then has been an avid reader, writer, and communicator eager to learn about the cultures around her. She studied Spanish, French, and German during her International Baccalaureate program and loves traveling abroad to connect with her heritage and explore new cultures. Pauline is currently a senior at the University of Texas at Austin, double-majoring in international relations and global studies and German. When she is not studying or working, she enjoys watching sitcoms, live music, and exploring restaurants and coffee shops around Austin. 
Pauline is thrilled to join the Freestyle Language team and is passionate about its mission to make language learning a collaborative, inclusive experience that prioritizes interpersonal communication.
