  • How did i get into Cheerleading?
    • Started doing martial arts and was looking for a good sports hall. I met cheerleaders in Pfungstadt and joined. After a week, I became so enthusiastic about this sport that I stopped all other sports and focused entirely on cheerleading.
  • What does Cheerleading mean to me?
    • In the beginning it was a hobby, with an amateur level. Years past, and experiences as an athlete, coach and person itself made Cheerleading way more important and essential. It is now part of my life, professionally and privately. Cheerleading has become a lifestyle and I am very proud and happy what I have accomplished.
  • Tips and tricks that i would like to share and recommend to cheer athlete and the community…
    • Role models are the important … looking for a person to whom you look up and try to improve is crucial. Be competitive, create competition in the team and the people around you and enjoy the process. The atmosphere, attitude and athlete spirit will make you better athlete and person and push you to the next level and progression. Always try to be better with a positive manner and attitude. Never give up and always keep your goals in mind!
  • Describe the “perfect” cheerleader…
    • A perfect cheerleader is an allrounder who can lead the team. A person, who is open and understands the “big picture”… not only focusing on himself, but always prefers the team!
