I was born in Munich, in 1997. I was just another human being out of 5.9 billion at that time. Since I was 2 we started living in a big house in Kissing. Thats were I spent the next 8 years of my life. I had two older sisters. Chio and Cherry. The big house came with a beautiful garden, swing, a pool, a pond, a slide, rabbits, trees and flowers. I enjoyed playing when I could. I had plenty of toys and Cherry was a great story teller.
We had many computer games which were also fun. I loved being immersed in a fantasy world when when my sister was telling the plot while we were playing with plastic dinosaurs and wooden blocks. Lego was fun when I was by myself. I loved Lego, I just didn't like that they were out of plastic. My mother said once something bad about plastic and it made sense to me. Plastic didn't feel right. So I made a fantasy planet. It was called Harmony. In that planet humans didn't live on it. We all lived on asteroids distributed in our solar system. I had my own spaceship and there I had a Lego train made out of wood. And the planet itself was just full of nature, with the occasional magic tree house full of wisdom and knowledge. It was the planet I wanted to go to. It was the beginning of my dream.. at around 8. In 2008 my father decided he wanted to move out of Germany and I was keen on coming with him. So we did, we moved to Malta. A small island in the Mediterranean sea. My father didn't work for that year and I finally got to know more about my father. Back in Germany he was always working and I only spent time with him in holidays or sometimes in the weekends. My passion for computers continued and I got into programming. I wanted to make a game. So I started reading a Java book and later continued learning by trying to make a game. In 2014 I made two small flash games. I had many ideas and there was so much to learn digitally. I wished at that time that I wouldn't have to go to school and just follow my passion.
I had to continue the path that was given to me. school - university - job. Although it was clear to me that I never wanted to work for anyone, my hope was to become independent as quickly as possible so I could just follow my passions and follow my dream. Which at that point moved from planets and solar systems to maybe an island in the pacific where humans can live freely under their own laws. However having this feeling that the only thing important around yourself is school, and my own passion being working on my software projects I used to distract myself a lot with games and YouTube. I didn't like doing homework and rather wanted to work on my projects.
It was the last year of school which was the hardest for me. There many variables involved. I was suffering from recursive deep depressions. I had a few burn outs and I could not stand how shallow some people around me where.
There many low points in that year. Many times I didn't want to live. I knew I wasn't the only one.
The pressure we are put under, the expectations from all around us, the dictated line we are all meant to follow. This stream everyone seems to follow without ever observing the stream from the outside. This stream which is killing our planet and no one cares, or no one cares enough to give everything up. So we follow the stream until we are forced to give everything up and anything that is left is the gears of a system.
I graduated from school in 2016. I didn't get into the university in Scotland that I could imagine to have gone to, and it also did not matter to me so much. I went to my mum's place in Germany and only after staying for some weeks she began pressuring me. She wanted me to get a job immediately or apply for a new university. She did not care about what I want. I do not even want to go into much detail.
Cherry rescued me. She introduced me to the undjetzt?! conference. For the first in my life I found someone with a similar dream as me. To create a micronation/community where we can live in harmony together with our surroundings. I was fascinated, because he has been living 5 years without money and he was also following his dream. Something I had thought all these years to be impossible to do without enough financial matter. I felt a light in my path. I was very excited.
I hitch hiked home and told with all my excitement to my mother that I met this amazing people from a yunity network and most of them even live money free. I am also going to live money free now!
She was never so disappointed in me. She said that I hadn't grown out of my childish dreams since I left to Malta. She told me I am following an Illusion.
I left the house after the short argument. I tented nearby a forest.
My dream has been the only thing that had mattered to me. I was suicidal back in the system and that day I began to live.
I was still wondering if I made the right choice. I tried to calm myself.
I launched the gameboy emulator on my phone. I started some old Pokemon ROM. I was little ash in the Pokemon world. I went downstairs as ash. And told ash's mother about my plans to go out and catch all the Pokemons. Ash's mother was very supportive and that was all the support i needed from my virtual little world.
The next day I hitch hiked to place where these yunity people were going to meet. At that time that was the best month of my life. The people were nothing like the prejudice my mother had about them when I told her that a lot of them lived money free. They were partly the kindness whole hearted humans I had met. All with well awareness about the problems our planet is facing right now and they were all active in interesting projects not focused on money, but on actually helping the world.

I lived a year in Portugal. I helped out in different communities and followed my spiritual path. Finding myself, my values and the beautiful simplicity of Taoism. I mediated, practiced the Wim Hof Method, swam in lakes, lived in nature, visited many neighbors and enjoyed the moments in life. It was the most beautiful year of my life. I felt connected with my inner self. I felt inner harmony.
