Since August 2019 she is intaktiv ambassador. In her statement as an intaktiv ambassador, she explains that in the sense of the German Constitution, it is a question of guaranteeing equality and ensuring protection against discrimination for all, so that the free development of the personality of all people is guaranteed.
“ I would like to use my voice, my name and my face in a positive way to work together against female genital mutilation and baseless foreskin amputations on boys and to stand up for the genital self-determination of intersex people. To achieve these goals, we need to rid ourselves of unnecessary prejudices and stop being silent and taboo. Article 2 para. 1 of the German Constitution states: "Everyone has the right to the free development of his personality, insofar as he does not violate the rights of others and does not violate the constitutional order or the moral law." In this sense, it is about To ensure equality and to ensure protection against discrimination for all, so that the free development of the personality of all people is guaranteed. ”
