"Talking Germany" presenter Peter Craven talks to Asli Bayram about role models, prejudices and attempts to halt the ageing process.
She's young, beautiful, clever and singleminded in her pursuit of an international acting career. Asli Bayram's motto for life is: "you can do anything if you really want to".That is something the 28-year-old has demonstrated in impressive style several times already As "Miss Deutschland" in 2005, she was the first German beauty queen with a Turkish background. She viewed the title as her own personal contribution to the integration debate. Her biggest professional success has been in theater, in the role of "Anne Frank".
To be a role model, to motivate people to show tolerance and respect for each other - these are the life goals that Asli Bayram has set for herself. It's also the subject of her book, which has just been published here in Germany.
