what are you really good at?

songwriting, writing poetry (in the shortest possible time), writing speeches and rally texts, moderating. i have some singing experience, flexible body (contortions etc.), basic notions of dancing and body movements

what do you do besides modelling?

i like to help with demonstrations and rallies - mainly with the organisational aspects, as well as the creative aspects -> creative directing and also smaller productions of performances are among my absolute passions outside of my regular professional life. i love conceptualising ideas and imaginations of my environment, consisting of performers and artists. "social media management / social media content moderator" is also a part of my active everyday life and fills me with creative euphoria!

who are your lgbtqia+ role models?

i have to refer to a cliché at this point - an icon who has discussed, explained and served the subject of transgender and intersexuality to the general public on an insanely commercial and large scale. we are talking about cher, of course. in addition, my personal hero, even if not directly a role model, is my "guncle". My "uncle of the heart", who has supported me since i was 12 years old when it came to the subject of sexuality, who showed me the strength with which we have to fight for a solid foothold outside the community when there is no family safety net. this person showed me the bond between two people who share a destiny and therefore form a community, a family, and taught me that we cannot hold this front against the outside world alone, but must bring all our brothers and sisters in the lgbtqia+ community to us, help, support and strengthen them together.

what makes you get out of bed in the morning?

myself. it took me (too) long to realise that the only strength i need to master the day lies in myself. my passions and preferences are just the extra things i use to sweeten my life. but to meet this question with an answer, i would say: music, adventurousness and restlessness, and my favourite person in the world.
