As a child of divorced parents and the oldest of three brothers I enjoyed to its fullest extent the beauty of country life: Freedom in abundance! – To decide what I wanted to do, how I wanted to do it and to decide what makes me happy. As the years began to unfold and the curiosity grew I staring searching for answers to questions.
During a phase of great dissatisfaction my Patchwork-Family decided to move from the peacefulness of country life to the hustle and bustle of city life. In this new environment and community it did not take me long to discover my passion for handball in which I found team spirit, acknowledgement/recognition and comradely. Besides that, I learnt much about discipline, structure and goal setting. Just before jumping into the professional sport arena, I suffered my first cruciate ligament rupture.
Instead of a professional sport career I completed my professional training as Wholesale and Foreign Trade Buyer. During this time I occupied myself with a question that fascinated and motivated me to find solutions. The question was “ How can we economically optimise the points of view/aspects regarding employee working conditions. My wish was to turn this interest into my profession. In 2011 I applied for a position at the Ostfalia University to study Management and Healthcare Management. At the same time, my yearning, hard work and persistence paid off. I successfully secured a paid position in professional Handball.
Driven by the thirst for knowledge, know-how and practical experience I gathered a multitude of skills and tools from numerous businesses. After three and a half years of informative and intensive learning I successfully completed a practice project in working-collaboration with the Rewe group.
After my third cruciate ligament rupture I decided to fulfil my life-dream- a trip around the world. Armed with one thousand Euros I set off into the wild blue yonder. My travels and adventures took me through Europe, Oceania and Asia. It was the best schooling of my life.
