Not an ordinary child
Born in Germany on December 27 1998, in a small town called Worms, Alica Schmidt has had a pretty normal childhood, growing up with two loving parents in southwestern Germany in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
But very quickly, it became obvious that Schmidt wasn’t an ordinary girl. Even as a child, she captured everyone’s attention with her unique talent. But she was going to get famous worldwide for other reasons than just her talent in sports.
