I am Eva. I grew up in the beautiful BlackForest (a National Park in South-West-Germany) in an earth-conscious household with parents who have always been focused on sustainability, local & organic food, and low-waste. Growing up in such a pure natural surrounding, I spend most of my time outside, playing with my friends and doing sports.
With the age of 19, I moved out of my parents house to study Sports Science and Social Work. In this time I started surfing, which is still one of my biggest passions until now. After Uni, I worked for several years as a social worker and curative teacher in a youth community for menatlly ill juveniles.
My enormous desire to be in pure nature and close to the ocean has caused me to finally move to Portugal (South-West-Algarve) in 2016.
It was only there that I understood the full extend of the environmental crisis we are in. I couldn’t have imagined how bad the pollution of our planet REALLY is and how urgent WE need to CHANGE our habits and get out of our so called “comfort zones”. Being at the beaches and in the water a lot , I lit(t)er-ally see how far we went with our overconsumption- and trash-society.
Feelings of sadness, frustration & anger about our environmental situation have overwhelmed me, so I have taken a few decisions in my life. I chose to not be angry or sad or frustrated about it anymore, but rather act (than REact) and live a life as sustainable as I can. Step by step.
Thanks to every single person who supports me and NALU ♡♡♡
