In the immortal words of Pippi Longstocking, “I have never tried that before, so I think I should definitely be able to do that.” Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every child was as curious and incredibly self-confident as the character in Astrid Lindgren’s books?

My goal

I was lucky enough to have a wonderful childhood spent discovering the world through playing lots of active games, growing and testing my limits. Every child deserves to have similar experiences. That’s why I’m campaigning to make it a reality.

Besides the field

I’m a lively person with a sense of humor who loves to laugh and be active outdoors. Although football has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, I also play other ball sports such as tennis and beach volleyball. In winter, I’m eager to hit the slopes skiing and snowboarding. When that’s not an option, I dig out the board games and play to win, of course. ;-) In tandem with my football career, I studied sports science and business administration in Freiburg, Germany, and am currently trying to get my first off-the-field working experience through internships. What’s more, I used to coach at a football academy in Freiburg and learned to love how non-judgmental and honest kids are. That’s why I want to help them.
