When I moved to a new city, I was looking for other people to connect with. So I started skateboarding. From the first day I had my gang and I was constantly outside skateboarding. I was the only girl who skatet, in a city with 300,000 inhabitants. That’s an odd thing, isn’t it? After a long pause and injuries I started in Berlin with the longboarding. It’s a big deal in life, it’s my thing. What’s yours? And you’re doing it?
In this blog I want to encourage you to do own your thing – even if it’s different from conventions and role models.
I know, what I’m speaking about. I was confronted thousands of times, adviced to do something „real“ or better not to be myself.
Women who ride? At that time, when I was on fire, I got a manicure set for Christmas instead of „something with skating“. I cried, probably because I wasn’t taken serious in my passion. Today I regret that I was pushed into my role as a woman.
With my board I was already on several places. From mid-November I escape the German winter and give you report from California.
