My name is Philine Elouisa Cato Messner but everybody call me Cato. My namesake is Cato Bontjes van Beek who in tough times listened to her heart and hence was executed.
I was born in 2005 on May 27th at Urban Hospital in Berlin-Kreuzberg. I live in Kleinmachnow and go to Neue Gesamtschule Babelsberg, which is part of Filmgymnasium (film high school) Babelsberg. In my spare time I go sailing. It gives me the feeling of getting everywhere, and besides you work in a team. I also like to read, e.g. fantasy stories, but historical stories as well. When I go to the movies I prefer fantasy films. I’m interested in acting, and in the past I participated in some plays at Haus der Jugend in Berlin-Zehlendorf. At a workshop of NABU concerning wolves I learned about trick film and together with a group produced one of my own. Apart from that I love to listen to people telling their stories.
