Jérôme Boateng: (21yrs) Defender in the german national football team

It could be said that football runs in the veins of Jérôme's family. He was born in Berlin on September 3rd to a Ghanian father and a German mother. Jerome and his brothers, who are footballers as well, were born into football. His uncle played in the Ghanian national team.

His volatile thus incalculable style of play makes him a tough defender.

His resumé includes Hertha BSC and currently Hamburger SV at the national level. He also played in German U-19 and U-21 German national football teams. He was recruited this year into the German national team.
Jérôme and his brother Kevin-Prince Boateng who plays for FC Portsmouth in England.

Dr. Sylvie Nantcha (34) - Die Freiburger Neu-Gemeinderätin


Personally, I think she must be a master in multitasking and discipline in order to pull it through her wife-mother-career and politcal roles as a councillor in Freiburg.

Die in Kamerun geborene promovierte Literaturwissenschaftlerin lebt seit 1992 in Freiburg, ist verheiratet und Mutter von drei Kindern. Sie wurde bei der Kommunalwahl im Juni mit 75% der Wahlstimmen als Mitgleid der CDU-Fraktion in den Freiburger Gemeinderat gewält. Kurz davor wurde sie am CDU-Landesparteitag in Friedrichshafen neu als Beisitzerin in den CDU-Landesvorstand gewählt. Sie ist Sprecherin für Schule und Weiterbildung sowie für Migration der CDU-Fraktion Freiburg.


Backstage with Nneka in Krefeld

My encounter with Nneka was somewhat unusual. It wasn't unusual to be the only african in the audience at her concert in Magdeburg. I had found my way to the front row ( I always try to ) and I could feel her energy and words deep down in me. When I went to sign the CD I had bought, she said ' I was happy to see you on the first row because I believe you can connect to my message'. That was the first time an artist personally expressed the wish to connect and send out a message to me. We then exchanged contacts...and I have been a number one fan since then.....

If you are uncomfortable with the truth then you can't be at ease with Nneka whose first two albums ' Victim of truth' and ' No longer at ease' let their titles speak for themselves.

Her most successful single 'Heartbeat' made the top ten of German charts 2007. Listen to her speak about that single:

And a lil more Nneka....

Nneka was born (1981) and raised in Nigeria. She later moved to Germany where her career in Music kicked off. Put in her words..'music found me and not I music', it is no wonder that major German newspapers labelled this beautiful talent very timely the Lauryn Hill of Germany.
