Germany’s “Paris Hilton” and her Eritrean Roots

Alessandra “Sandy” Meyer-Wolden, ex-girlfriend of Tennis star Boris Becker, is a little known celebrity outside Germany.

She commutes back and fourth between New York and Frankfurt to take care of her jewellery design business and she covers the front pages of celebrity tabloids.

Sandy grew up in Germany and was sent by her mother (Antonella Meyer-Wolden) to the United States after the death of her father and former lawyer of Boris Becker (Axel Meyer- Wolden) in 1999.

After studying in Miami she opened her own jewellery designer brand in the United States and Germany.

Her former relationship with Boris Becker and breath taking beauty brought her celebrity status and the nick name of Germany’s “Paris Hilton”.

At a first glance one could not sense the roots of Alessandra, as she is a daughter to a biracial marriage born to a mother from Eritrea and a Father from Germany.

However, when looking at her mother the Eritrean roots become more obvious. Alessandra says that although she lost her father very early at the age of 14, life has awarded her and her mother with a lot of luck and fortune.

She says that her mother who was born in Eritrea came from a poor family and had to earn her living as a singer when she moved from Eritrea to Italy.

Her father grew up in a care home and had financed his university degree while working as a taxi driver and later became a lawyer for Boris Becker.

She says that her mother had it very difficult in the early days after leaving Eritrea and as this was a great lesson for Sandy which thought her how to be self-sufficient and to stay in touch with reality.

It seems that sandy has little in common with the real Paris Hilton as she seems to be more down to earth, which makes it even more confusing why the Germans have nick named her after the Hilton party princess.
