The Swiss top model lived and worked in New York for twelve years. Now she is back in Zurich and ready for the next generation.
Anja Leuenberger lived in New York for twelve years. Most recently she lived in an apartment in the Chelsea district.
The 29-year-old grew up in Fislisbach in Aargau. She has lived on the outskirts of Zurich since November 2021.
Leuenberger's newly renovated three-room attic apartment is still a bit empty. The containers with their belongings should be docked in Amsterdam in a few weeks.
Anja Leuenberger (29) lived and worked successfully as a model in New York City for twelve years.
Now she has turned her back on the big city and has come back to Switzerland.
The girl from Aargau now has a three-room apartment – Attic apartment on the outskirts of Zurich.
In an interview, Leuenberger reveals that she would like to have a family of her own, but the partner for happiness is still missing.
At the tender age of 14, Anja Leuenberger was discovered as a model. She quickly works her way up into the international fashion world. In order to pursue her dream of the big catwalks, she turned her back on Switzerland in 2009 and emigrated to New York. Now, twelve years later, she looks out over the Sihl and the roofs of Zurich from her three-room attic apartment. She has decided to come back to Switzerland and leave the urban jungle behind – but not her job, which she wants to continue from here.
The 29-year-old made the decision from her gut, as she reveals during a home visit to the “Schweizer Illustrierte”. Corona was also one of the reasons for this: “With the start of the pandemic, I could no longer visit my family for a year and a half.” Despite regular video calls with her loved ones, Anja longed to admit that she was not doing well. Even if she would rather not have said anything so as not to burden her from a distance. “In the end my mother and I cried together on the phone,” she reveals.
A man, two children and four dachshunds
Anja Leuenberger is looking for a fortune teller or magician every few months. She is just “a little Feelein”. With a view to her milestone birthday, in August next year, the model has apparently also sought advice on family planning. So far she only wanted one child, “but my astrologer thinks I'll have two,” she says. A thought she has apparently become friends with. The single woman imagines her future as follows: “A beautiful family, two children, happy, healthy, four dachshunds.”
