I was born in 1983 in Sibiu (Romania) to parents working as teachers. They belong to two different German speaking minorities, so I grew up with German as mother tongue and learning Romanian and English along the way. I spent the first years of my life in Sibiu.
When I was 10, we moved to Austria. I attended music and drawing classes which I enjoyed very much, being a creative person. Afterwards I went to university in Vienna for three years to study cultural und social anthropology which was very interesting for me. Yet, I did not finish my academic studies. The most important reason was my realization that finishing would constitute a detour in my life.
I have been living in a partnership for several years and have married the man of my heart. Our common children greatly enrich my life.
