About Me

Who am I, what am I doing and what have I done so far in my life?

I am Amy Valeria Black. I was born in Germany in 1982 and raised in a small German town.

My first education was to foreign language correspondency and commercial interpretation for English and Spanish. That was not yet enough for me, so I decided to study further and I then acquired a diploma for interior design.

At the same time I had to do some business studies, which resulted as a part of dual studies for business studies with key aspects on retail in a CCI degree of retail saleswoman. Further modules of the studies were marketing and laws. But as I grew up in retail, I didn’t quite feel like pursuing that path any further for the time being. I had an idea to open my own shop, but I had to find something else for me.

I did not quite feel satisfied and went for some ‘soul searching’ to London, where I volunteered for PETA, before holding a position within the same organisation as Fundraising Assistant.

Afterwards I rediscovered my creativity more again, so I visited the Working Men’s College, London, for Graphics and Design, Web Design as well as Access to Art and Design while I have also been working as a Model and held a few events, such as an aftershow party for Lacrimas Profundere. Feel free to have look through my page for my creative works.

I have also discovered my passion for writing again, for which I’ve started writing again. I got so inspired on my journey for my first book, that I have planned several more books in the years to come. On the side I also do enjoy to maintain my bilingual vegan blog and a blog about allergies together with my sister. As a vegan I am highly interested in our environment, have a huge interest in art as well as history and also do have a passion for pets. I do currently reside with three cats and a foster cat, while I’ve started a correspondence course on the side to an alternative holistic homeopath for pets.
