Before she became a pop singer: Vanessa Mai broke off two training courses
Vanessa Mai (The stage names of the big hit stars and their real names) does not have a high school diploma. Her parents wanted her to earn some money, so she trained to be a tax clerk. “Even though I was a real sucker at math,” laughs Vanessa Mai. It is clear to everyone that this cannot go well and so Vanessa Mai gave up after only three months.
Next point in her vita: An apprenticeship as a clerk for marketing communication. But at that time she already had a few appearances “nothing worth mentioning, any village festivals”, reveals Vanessa Mai (The most successful German pop singer of all time). Nevertheless, her education suffered from her passion for music.
Secretly at the village festival: hit star Vanessa Mai was fired during training
“Unfortunately, I was thrown out of the probationary period – because I was too busy with music on the side,” Vanessa Mai remembers before. Because the local press reported on their secret appearance at the village festival. Her boss at the time found out about her passion for music. “My boss didn’t think that was so cool,” says the pop singer.
Her fans are all the more enthusiastic about it – from her music, but also from her content on Instagram.
