Silke lost her left leg above the knee after developing a serious infection. This was not very long ago and for that reason all the more remarkable that she has been able to adapt and overcome the problems she has had to face so quickly. She has an incredibly positive and go ahead attitude, which has helped her tremendously. She is able to wear a C-Leg type prosthesis, which allows her walk almost normally. Silke likes to go to the cinema and she also enjoys reading and going to parties, where she can meet and talk to her friends. Her favourite food is tuna pizza.
