I was born in what was then called Yugoslavia, but was growing up my whole life in Germany. As I became older, my interest in the history of Ex-Yugoslavia increased. I wanted to know what happened to this torn country and why everything fell apart. I started to read books about it and simultaneously began to appreciate the political system of Germany with all its strengths and weaknesses.
From a general interest in my country of birth I developed a specific interest in political systems, especially the one in Germany - the land that has offered me so many chances. As life isn’t only about taking but also giving, I am eager to take part in politics actively. As long as I’m on the tennis-court, this won’t be realistic, but when I chuck away my racket one day, the time has come.
I don’t know yet how my way in politics will look like, but from founding a party to becoming the next federal chancellor everything is possible. I gained my first practical experience during a traineeship in the Hessian State Chancellery. The possibility to take a look at the work of the Hessian Premier Roland Koch was a great experience for me. Provided the opportunity to get involved in political processes, I would focus on the generation between 25 and 40, who in my opinion suffers in our society under a lack of attention. So don’t be afraid of elections – now you know where to put your cross in future.
