🎠 Age 4 or 5. My grandmother sees me riding a carrousel horse and says out of the blue “one day I will buy you a horse”.

👵🏼Age 11. I fell in love with a black Icelandic horse. I reminded Grandma of her promise.

🎓Age 15. attend apprenticeship to become a professional horse trainer.

🦅Age 18. I sell my Icelandic horse in exchange for an Andalusian stallion. This is the only action in my life which I regret today.

I also finished the apprenticeship and got invited to work as a show rider in a park with birds of prey Falconeria Locarno

🥾Age 22. I work as a stable manager for a lawyer in his big mansion. This perfect job felt like a golden cage, and I got depressed, so I listened deep inside of me, and my heart told me to go on the historical pilgrimage Jakobsweg in Spain together with my horse. I quit my job the next day.

🗺Age 23. I took the most fantastic travel journey and walked together with my horse the 2500 kilometres from Zürich to Finisterre across Europe. After the expedition ended, I sold the horse and bought aeroplane tickets across the world, where I continued to expand my horizon.

👮‍♀️Age 24. I needed money and felt urged by society to take a reasonable path. I took a job as a security officer and prepared for Swiss police school. My lack of orthography saved me from that fate.

🎪Age 26. Still working as a security officer, and out of sheer boredom, I get depressed and once more listen deep inside of me. This time my heart wants to go to the circus.

I moved into wagon Nr. 5 from Circus Monti. I was hired to do publicity!

👩‍❤️‍👨 First, I fell in love with the circus. Then I fell in love with the wirewalker Chris Pettersen. I decided to become an artist myself!

🎭Age 27. The first act, first award, first job in Varieté PEGASUS

🤸‍♀️Age 31. I start teaching circus arts in various schools and associations. Meanwhile, a wonderful friend started teaching me aerial acrobatics.
