Is there an ideal of beauty? Due to an autoimmune disease Lisa lost her entire hair at age eleven. In an emotional and extremely personal talk, she shares insights in her long struggle with self-confidence and presents eye-opening stories about women with similar conditions as part of her latest project “Schönlinge” to emphasize their unique femininity and beauty.

Lisa has been many things in her young life; but right now, she is a student. Through multifaceted interests and the urge to experience the unknown, she has visited various universities and has lived in several different countries. After finishing her bachelor's degree in German philology and Arts in Braunschweig and several stopovers in Stockholm, Berlin, and France later, she finds her present-day field of interest in Psychology.
