Let's talk about failure

Most of us like to talk about our achievements. Our failures, however, are rather kept secret. In many societies, failure is still a taboo. Success is considered valuable, whereas failure is met with shame. We have invited Germany Alumni who are brave enough to share their personal stories about failure and how they dealt with it. You are also invited to share your experiences!
