City and Country of Origin:
German, a little bit Italian
My friends and family often describe me with one simple word: weird. Other words that have come to define me are: spontaneous, dramatic, unpredictable, and just plain awesome. I've also been well known for my fertile imagination. I presume this all sprouted by my love of the arts, espicially literature. As a young girl, my family tranferred to the US for both educational and occupational reasons. After college graduation, I moved straight back to Berlin. I've been working as a model since, while writing my book in my spare time.
What do you love about your country?
Everything in German culture just fills me with wonder. Germany is known for being "Das Land der Dichter und Denker," the land of poets and thinkers. Ever since I was little, I had fallen in love in Germany's diverse styles of the arts and their representation of art. I also love the variety of cuisine there, everything from Italian to Japanese. Many important and historical figures have originated from Germany, such as Albert Einstein, Johann Sebastian Bach, and more.
Why do you believe you were chosen to represent your country in the Miss World competition, and what image of your heritage do you wish to present to the rest of the world?
It was a little shocking to me when they announced that I was chosen out of so many other applicants to represent Germany. If I were to guess why, it was most likely because of my love for German culture, and I did have a bit of an advantage from my modeling experience.
Many people look down upon Germany with scorn and contempt because of World War II and Adolf Hitler. Others often forget that the Nazis invaded their own country first. I want to show the world that Germany has a lot more to offer than living under Hitler's horrendous shadow.
