About Joel Mattli

Joel is 27 years old. He is currently studying economics, is a participant in "Germany's strongest show," Ninja Warrior, and takes personal training sessions at the Swiss Life sports club.

Joel finds it important to keep reinventing oneself. He enjoys travelling the world regularly and has already been able to tick off a number of locations on his bucket list: Costa Rica, Fuerteventura, Venice Beach, Morocco and Thailand are particularly fond memories for him. But the 27-year-old is not only keen on the world’s most far-flung locations. Regular sporting pursuits, various modelling assignments and his own ring collection also ensure that Joel Mattli never becomes bored.

With a smile on his face, Joel can say: I lead a self-determined life. 

I try to live my dream of self-determination every day. To me, self-determination means courage. Courage to keep facing challenges. To develop. And trying to get the best out of yourself.
