Leonhard Wilhelm wants to set his own marks at Rapunzel
Leonhard Wilhelm says that he doesn't just want to follow in the footsteps of his parents, but to follow them by setting his own footsteps. He sees parallels to his hobby: "As a long-time skateboarder I love and live the life of a border crosser. However, you should only consciously cross the borders if you have the ability to do so. And I see this new task as a challenge in life."
