Anyone who gets to know Herbert Schreib meets an open minded, approachable, sympathetic Austrian. And that is no coincidence. After all, who can claim to have landed in the USA within a few weeks thanks to a long night in a bar as a student, to have worked in his dream job as a student there and to have laid the foundation for his further professional development with this adventure?
Even when Herbert Schreib was choosing a place to study German and Sports Science, it was clear to the passionate whitewater athlete that it had to be a university with challenging rivers nearby. So it became Salzburg, where he took the educational path of a teacher. At that time, he was not aware that he would never practice this profession – at least not in an institution like a school.
What was certain for him, however, even then, was that he would spend his life empowering people.
