Our Nature's Wonder Claudia Weingarte
As a flight attendant, Claudia Weingarte travels all around the world. Her base is here in Frankfurt where she lives with her partner, Tim. When she’s not flying high in the sky, she looks after her major passion: her own handbag label “Rosenstaub”.
Claudia Weingarte is exactly the type of woman we were looking for to take part in our Natural Wonder campaign. She is self-confident, goes her own way, and doesn’t allow herself to be swallowed up by a busy lifestyle. She knows what does her good and she does good by fulfilling the wishes of severely ill children. This makes Claudia a true Nature's Wonder in our eyes!
Claudia Weingarte talking about the greatest joy in her life
I moved out of home at 16 and started an apprenticeship in a hotel. Because I started working so young, I had to shoulder responsibilities myself at a relatively young age. I was able to enjoy my independence, freedom, and adventurousness early. I was always motivated to try something new, even if I sometimes failed. Even the best plan won’t work if you don’t follow through with the necessary staying power. Life lies outside your own comfort zone. If you don’t change anything, you stay exactly where you are now.
I know what life is all about. I’ve achieved a great deal and these days I can say exactly what I want and what I don’t want thanks to all the experience I have accumulated.
The rose of Jericho. This plant can survive many years without water or soil but when it finally finds water it starts to flower again. It is almost brought back to life. A real natural wonder! To prevail despite all the challenges thrown at you and against all odds!
My partner, my handbag label Rosenstaub, humor, loyalty, trust.
Stories about people and their innovative ideas! People who have realized their dream through diligence, hard work, courage and persistence.
Claudia’s favorite pastime
Take time out more often, eat healthy food, drink a glass of still water with fresh lemon juice first thing every morning! Toxins out, nutrients in, a basic start to the day!
Natural cosmetics are very important to me. It doesn’t make sense to eat healthy food and then apply a whole lot of harmful substances to your skin. When I apply nature to my skin, I have the feeling that I have done something healthy for myself. It immediately boosts my wellbeing.
That the things I use are as natural as possible. Animal welfare and housing is important to me. I don’t want any preservatives. I eat fresh food. And I like to cook. And even with cosmetics, I pamper my body with natural products. Please, no parabens or other chemical additives.
People who work when others are sleeping. Who make sure the airline passengers get to New York, who look after the sick and put out fires, all when most people are enjoying their evenings off.
In 2013, my partner Tim and I got to know a delightful child called Céline on a joint flight to Tanzania. Céline was severely ill with cancer and had made a wish to see a sunrise from the cockpit of a plane and experience the wild animals in Africa while she still could. She was a very special guest and was able to be in the cockpit when the sun came up. Tim was one of the two pilots on this flight. The Make-A-Wish Foundation fulfilled her wish and sent her on the trip. We were deeply moved by Céline’s story and decided to support Make-A-Wish with our handbag label Rosenstaub so that other children’s eyes would light up the way hers had.
