I am a 25-year-old long-distance runner and a member of the Runners' Lab Athletics Team. For me, running is not only a sport but also a passion and especially a lifestyle. I will always do everything to push my limits and make all my dreams come true! My ultimate goal is to participate in the Olympic Games at the marathon. In addition to my athlete career, I also have a master's degree in "Business Engineering" in 2021.

I am an athlete who is not easily satisfied with a performance. I always want to do better than the previous race and keep improving my personal records. I like to learn quickly. Sometimes I try to imitate or learn a technique by watching other athletes. I am very motivated during training and I don't give up easily, but sometimes I dare to let my head hang down when things don't go as I had hoped. I am always open to humour and jokes on and off the slopes.Read more
