The story behind
Nika grew up with books, ads and movies that featured only men in the positions she craved. It took her some time to figure out she did not need to be a boy to reach her goals, it just took much more effort, determination and courage.
At 17, she decided to become one of the role models she missed as a young girl and made her way in male dominated environments, both in her professional and personal life. She graduated from 3 engineering degrees and set off to South America to large engineering projects in remote locations, become and entrepreneur and also found time for her "crazy" adventures in the outdoors. Climbing, paragliding, surfing, adventure racing, you name it. In 2017, she set a new Guinness World Record and became the first woman to kitesurf 1000km along the coast of Brazil alone.
Nika realized she was not alone. Many incredible women were silently setting off the beaten paths and proving that a new world where gender does not handicap your ambitions is possible.
Nika decided to launch Girls Dream Big to support new female role models that inspire future generations of boys & girls alike.
