Who makes the perfect supporter?Somebody who knows me well, is multi-skilled and has a positive mindset.

Why do you want to do the race again?To show to the paragliding and sport community that women can do it too, differently, with their own abilities. I hope there will be more communication around women during the race. I hate to stay on a disappointment. This adventure is just crazy, so intense and emotional. I just want to relive this, with the learnings of my first participation.

What will you do differently this time around?To do better, check the lines before take-off and pay attention to the rain. Less pressure, more fun, and take all precautions necessary for my security.

What do you enjoy about the race?To hike and fly, sleep, eat and repeat. Nothing else matters during those 12 days.
