Fifteen years ago, you gained a lot of attention in Ischgl as a “preemie” weighing just 400g at birth. Is this still an issue in your everyday life?
For me and my friends it’s not relevant at all. For Mama and Papa more so.
What hobbies do you have?
Drawing, mostly with coloured pencils. One of my pictures is hanging up in the surgery of our family doctor, Dr. Andreas Walser. I’ve been learning the piano for nine years, and have been teaching myself the ukulele since Christmas 2017.
What would you like to be when you grow up?
On 1 August, I’m starting a confectionery traineeship at the Kurz bakery and confectionery in Ischgl. I’m really looking forward to it already.
