FOLLOWING YOUR TRUE PASSION
Meet the true explorer Ieva!
Meet our fresh new ambassador Ieva who has a constant hunger for adventures! Below you can read her story and passions and also find out her attitude towards sustainability and nature.
I am Ieva Urbonaviciute from Lithuania. I was born in an extremely flat country- we have no mountains just a few higher hills. However, I managed to become a successful Alpine skier, win several championships and finally become a skiing instructor and share my passion of skiing with the others. I am also involved in other extreme sports like wakeboarding, snowboarding, kitesurfing, longboarding, etc.
During winter season I work as a ski instructor in Italian resort. Over the past few winter seasons I have stayed in Madonna di Campiglio which is one of my favourite and also one of the most fashionable resorts in Alpes. After experiencing to work there, I surely know that nothing else matters when you are doing the job you love, when you are out in the nature and when you do not feel any desire for your job to end faster- you enjoy it that much!
When I am skiing, snowboarding or hiking I am surrounded by the mountains and forests. When I’m kitesurfing or wakeboarding I feel deep ocean all around me and the waves of the sea which I’m going through with my board. Nature is my passion and passion is a hell of a turn on!
Personally, the best morning for me is to wake up in the chalet up in the mountains at 4am. Then I would leave with a backpack and freestyle skis to meet the sunrise, ride down the best powder and start my lessons until the late evening when the sun goes down. I would repeat it every day with new challenges.
My every morning starts with inspiring thoughts and new goals in my mind: “Dream it and do it, you are here to climb the mountains not so the world can see you but you can see the world”.
Meanwhile I am finishing my bachelor in civil engineering. I’m mostly involved into green engineering studies. Worried about enormous challenges in the sustainability of our current lifestyle and systems. All impacts of natural and human activities must be be taken into consideration. I believe that you always have to think not only about yourself but also about your surroundings and never forget to live a more sustainable life.
