Besides my name, Irma, I also got courage, openness, and the love and happiness of life from my parents. In my childhood I used to watch the acrobats in the circus in awe, and wondered how they can so easily move in the air, stretch, and jump into and catch each other's arms. I also loved the way the rope-dancers walked with great confidence on the tightrope. Not surprisingly, I wanted to be one of them. However, after a knee-injury, my life lead me to another direction. I took pedagogy and became a kindergarten teacher. After that I studied lifestyle counseling and pastoral care, as health (both physical and mental) was always important to me. Now that my children have grown up and I found a partner who is very supportive, encouraging, collaborative and has a similar way of thinking, I feel it is my time to make my childhood-dreams come true. My age is not a matter here, the point is believing it is possible if I do my best. The more I do, the better I feel which is the most wonderful thing.
