How did you start playing golf?
I was nine years old when I started. My family started at the same time. I have one brother, but he is nine years old. I play at Golfclub Abenberg.
What are your future plans?
I finished school last year. I will try to play only golf this year and then I will decide whether to go to college or play golf.
What is your goal for the 2014 season?
I will try to achieve the top five so that I can play on the Ladies European Tour without playing the qualifying school.
What do you like doing aside from golf?
I play the piano, and I like skiing and playing tennis. At piano, I’m not bad, but not really good.
What are your proudest achievements so far?
My handicap is Handicap +2.6. I was first at the French Ladies’ Amateur in 2012 at St Germain.
What is your dream?
My dream is to play on the LPGA Tour.
