Wolfsburg

National team: Germany

Which player most inspired you and why? Lionel Messi, as his way of playing is unique and almost nobody can stop him.

Which coach most inspired you? Until now Kathrin Peter, as she has provided the biggest support as a coach for my development.

What was the best advice they gave you? Always try to improve; never give up, even in bad times; and many other important bits of advice in terms of technique and tactics.

Best player you've played with? Dzsenifer Maroszan.

Toughest opponent? United States.

What are your memories of your first club as a child? Many beautiful sandy piles of ash, and cute little boys.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Enjoy your time playing. It is all about fun at the beginning and you have to work on your weaknesses later on. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

What was the experience of playing in a youth final tournament? I learned to deal with bitter defeats and I had the experience of giving everything in every game, as one defeat can put you out. You get trips to see nice places, and the feeling of winning an important tournament is great.
