Porträtt.jpg

I was born with a love for movement and the outdoors. Like pretty much any child, I’d spend hours outside playing with my friends in the woods. My mom eventually put me in gymnastics, a sport which I ended up practicing passionately for almost fifteen years. After quitting gymnastics in my early adulthood, I felt lost for a while. And then, literally by chance, I found running. Within six months, I had finished my first 50k trail race. Two months later, I participated in a 50-mile (80k) race. That was five years ago and I haven’t looked back since. At the time, I could never have guessed what a big role ultra running would play in my life – today it’s my whole world.

Other than being a athlete who enjoys challenging her boundaries (read more about my achievements below), my strength lies in a unique ability to tell stories, particularly in writing and photography. With a degree in languages (Arabic/German specialty) and an usual eye for the creative, I love to share my thoughts, projects and adventures with others through my online channels.

My goal as an athlete is to explore known and unknown trails in my running shoes and see where they take me. As a storyteller and digital content creator, my goal lies in not only sharing moments with the world, but also to inspire others to an active lifestyle, to appreciate and respect our nature and to live a simpler and happier life. I am also an advocate of mental health issues, a subject that I often bring to the table in my channels.
