I’m a journalist, a feminist and an explorer. What I do, I do with passion. I’m no fan of small talk — let’s have a conversation about what really matters!


Born in:
Eschwege, Germany

English, German, Spanish, Catalan, rusty French and Dutch

Degrees/Journalistic experience:
M.A. in Journalism by the Autonomous University of Barcelona

With DW since:

Favorite quote:
“There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.” (Kofi Annan)

My personal heroes:
All the trailblazers, visionaries and activists fighting for full gender equality around the globe

What do I strive to be as a journalist?
As a journalist, I strive to be the person holding the megaphone for those whose voices are usually overheard or deliberately silenced. I firmly believe in the power of communication to build bridges and bring people together. Every day I go to work, I seek to make sense of the world and what makes it go around — first and foremost for our viewers — but also for myself.

7 famous people — dead or alive — I’d like to share a meal with

  • US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
  • Writer, filmmaker and activist Susan Sontag
  • Nobel Peace Price Laureate Nadia Murat
  • Executive director of UN Women and Under-Secretary General of the UN, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka
  • Writer and WWII veteran Harry Leslie Smith
  • Journalist Christiane Amanpour
  • Photojournalist Anja Niedringhaus
