Hello! We are the „Y.E.S“ team from the „Gymnasium Wellingdorf“! We are 5 boys who all attend the science profile at „Gymnasium Wellingdorf“. To give you a closer look at our interesses, our characters etc. we are going to introduce ourselves each by short texts:
Benno Ries: I’m Benno Ries, 15 years old, from Heikendorf. I’m interested in sailing, playing instruments, cars and last but not least in modern technology. This leads to the interest an enthusiasm for our topic. I don’t use „Facebook“, and I don’t have a „Facebook“ account, but I’m using „Instagram“ and „WhatsApp“ all day, so the question of „Facebook“ making money and maybe stealing our data is very important to me too.
Lukas Körber: I‘m Lukas Körber, 17 years old, from Laboe. I‘m visiting the „Gymnasium Wellingdorf“ in Kiel like the rest of my team. In my spare time I’m interested in computers and doing stuff with my friends, also I’m a member of the local firefighters. Like Benno, I’m not using Facebook directly, but „WhatsApp“ and „Instagram“ are part of my daily hustle. Because of the number of direct messages I’m used to writing on „WhatsApp“ in closely in touch with the data privacy of the „Facebook“ concern.
Björn Wurst: Hi, I am Björn Wurst from Kiel. I am 17 years old. I don’t think I have to say something about my school anymore… I am interested in physics, space and sports. Like most of the others I don’t use „Facebook“, but other social networks. Because of that, the question of our topic is interesting for me too.
Lucas Appel: Hey, I’m Lucas Appel, 18 years old and I live in Probsteierhagen. I attend the „Gymnasium Wellingdorf“ like the rest of our team. In my free time, I spend time with my dogs, read books or play games on the internet. I do use „Facebook“, but I don’t like it at all, because of various reasons. This, in combination with my use of „Instagram“ or „WhatsApp“, is, where my passion for this topic comes from.
Jendrik Witt: Hey, I’m Jendrik Witt, 16 years, from Kiel. I’m interested in sports, especially „American Football“. I like science, my favourite science is chemistry. I volunteer in a church in my free time, also I like to spend my time with friends, going to the gym and trying to learn as many things as possible in the topics I’m interested in. Also, I want to find solutions for special problems like our topic at the „Y.E.S“ competition.
