I grew up in Germany where I lived till last January (2000). My parents are both German, but I was born in Texas, so I have dual citizenship and it was always my dream to move to the states, but I never had the courage to leave till last
year. It's just me and I still miss my friends and family, but it's getting better and better.
I go to school here to become a teacher, but I don't
know if I finish that or do something else, I will
attend a firefighter academy during the summer, so
maybe that's more like me.
. . . and than there's modeling, which I'm really interested in, but it's hard to get in to. . .
well, in Germany I played competitive basketball for
over 14 years, bball is my great love and passion. I
started coaching my own team when I was 15 and did it
ever since, my team (where I played) was really
successful and my team (coach) got better and better
every year and it was awesome to see them developed and
improve all the way, since I only had this one team
for the whole time.
it was hard to leave all this behind, but I had to go
out there end try to realize my dreams so here I am.
I always worked with kids, as a coach in Germany, as a
counselor and basketball specialist in two summer
camps here in the USA (last two years, first one was
organized from Germany, second one I found through the
internet) and I have to say, working with kids is the
best and most rewarding thing I can imagine. Seeing
them succeed in a non competitive camp, just for
themselves and knowing that I helped them to succeed is
more worth than any money (and you won't get a lot of
and here in Denver, I worked as a counselor for teens
at risk in a group home my first year.
but now I'm just
a server at applebees and this summer is for me, so
I'm not able to work in a camp, which is really sad
but I guess necessary to find out what I want.
