WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
'I grew up in south of Germany, currently (since 7 years) I'm living in Frankfurt am Main.'
WHAT DRIVES YOU TO TRAVEL THE WORLD?
'Life is about learning and educating yourself, and I feel the best form of education is traveling.
As soon as you enter a plane, you learn. You meet people and cultures and that starts giving you something no school can teach you.
I'm curious, maybe as well a bit restless and love meeting new people and cultures. Might be as well, because I grew up with 2 nationalities. My dad is German and my mom is Croatian. That's why I was always close to the ocean.'
ASIDE FROM MOTORCYCLES AND SURF, WHAT OTHER PASSIONS YOU HAVE?
'I love being outdoor, hiking, riding everyday bicycle (cars are boring) and my great passion is my job. I'm a fashion designer, I love to create things and can spend nights with drawing, pattern making, sewing.'
SINCE WHEN DO YOU RIDE AND HOW DID YOU START?
'I started with 16, was riding friends 125cc Aprilia. Was hanging always out with guys, so was more motorcycles then make up :) Then occasionally.
7 years ago I went to Bali and there the fever hit me again. Since then I was riding every time in Bali (usually 4-7 weeks a year I'm on the island). Atm I'm getting a custom bike build here in Germany, hope will be ready in 3 weeks.'
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
'All the beautiful things Mother Nature has given us, like mountains, forests, ocean, etc. nothing's beats that. People which are not following the rules of society and rather chose to be happy than to be fitting in.People like my close friend tom, who has lost his leg to cancer and still is one of the happiest people on earth.
The happy and real ones, the people who lift you up and not drag you down.'
WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER GIRLS?
'Love yourself! You need to see the beauty and good things in you. Don't try to fit in anywhere, because you only need fit into your self. Be with people which support you, wich are honest and caring and might share your passions. And do what ever makes you happy, you need to like it and no one else :)'
