My name is Beatrice Beiderwieden and I am honoured to represent Germany in the Rose of Tralee! 

I am currently living in Berlin, having completed my Bachelor degree in Auditing last year. For almost seven years I have been working at Deloitte with a wonderful team, specialising in auditing the European Agricultural Subsidies. 

My Irish roots are on my mother's side; she was born and lived in Dublin before meeting my father and then moving to Germany in 1989. In my free time I enjoy playing golf and occasionally the clarinet. I love spending time with family and friends - most of all our family dog Guinness!

Since I was a little girl, both my aunt and especially my godmother - who is a well-known dancer in Ireland - always told me that they would see me one day as a Rose. 

I am looking forward to meeting all the other Roses and bringing some German culture to Tralee, having been fortunate enough to have lived in many parts of Germany such as Berlin, Düsseldorf, Black Forest and Cuxhaven.
