Being passionate about something or loving what you do is something all champions and sport aficionados have in common, yet turning a hobby into a career, that’s a big step. Julia Dujmovits took a leap of faith and after trying many sports, she chose snowboarding. And what a great choice she made for her life! But first, let's hear Julia sharing her memories about growing up in Burgenland, Austria.
TRYING OTHER SPORTS BEFORE SNOWBOARDING
Just in case you missed our introductory article, Julia Dujmovits grew up with three brothers, two older, one younger, so she got a lot of inspiration from her siblings on the sports side. For that reason, her childhood was full of various sports activities, even though snowboarding came into her life from an early age.
JULIA DUJMOVITS AND HER FIRST SNOWBOARD
Julia Dujmovits was destined to be an athlete. As a child, she tried many sports and it was just a matter of time until she would choose her future career. Santa brought her the first snowboard when she was quite young and it may have not looked like an option since Julia’s home town is in the low lands, so not too many glaciers around to train on. That was until she found a group of other children, passionate about snowboarding, that made her choice easier. One team, one dream!
