Where do I come from?
I’m from Bad Saulgau, a small town close to Lake Constance
Why do I sing?
Because it makes me happy and I coundn’t imagine my life without it.
And what do I like apart from singing?
My own personal musical highlight?
It may not be a musical highlight, but at the age of 17 I got the opportunity to sing in a concert from the Summer Academy at Mozarteum which was announced as „Particularly qualified students will show there talent“. It turned out that I was only allowed to sing, because I did not have this opportunity a lot, but in this speical moment, I was prouder than ever.
The golden rule: “Do not treat others in ways that you would not like to be treated“.
