Since when I have been working here: from the beginning, since 2005

Why I work here: Because this medium offers the possibility to claim help in a fast and uncomplicated way.

During my work as a social worker, I met many girls and women who have experienced and overcome many of the worst situations. Nevertheless, they have not lost their vitality and hope. Because of them, but also because of my own life philosophy, I know that it is worth, fighting for the own future. No matter how hard it is sometimes.

Particularly in difficult phases of life, it can be helpful to talk to someone, to search for solutions with someone if you do not know to continue. At gewaltlos.de I want to listen to all girls and women who are in a difficult life situation. I want to give courage and to look for a possible way.
