FIA was born in Shanghai, and after the birth of her sister, the family moved back to Germany. They now live in Berlin with their two rabbits Simba and Puschel. 

If you ask FIA what her favourite hobby is, the first thing she says is ‘performing’; she sings and dances anytime and anywhere and is the entertainer in her family.

During her appearance on this year's season of The Voice Kids, FIA impressed audiences with her translation of the songs using sign language. She was inspired to do this by her little sister.
