She started playing the piano and the Violin at a very young age and attended the Children’s Choir of the local theatre.

At the age of 12, she found her passion for playing the Mandolin. Her potential led to winning numerous prizes at the Nationwide Contest „Jugend Musiziert“ from 2015 to 2019, including two 1st prizes in 2018 and 2019.
