Anke Ardine

Running Athlete & Model
Anke has found success by following one simple rule in life – "that it is okay to build a career and life doing what you love". Drawing on nothing but her determination and her passion for sports, she was able to build a career from nothing. The need to later sacrifice her love of swimming to fulfill other obligations was a difficult decision, but one that ultimately led her to a passion for running and modeling. By pursuing what she found fun, she overcame her self-doubt and became a professional runner for Team Aspro, as well as attracting the attention of sponsors. By recounting her journey so far, Anke reflects on the transformative power of embracing change and staying true to one's passions. Her journey is proof that it can all start with having fun and forging one's own path, no matter the challenges.
