Alyha Love

Alyha Love is a walking contradiction, a typical child of the generation Y. Her life oscillates between her passions and others' expectations, between the search for love and the struggle to feel completely herself. In her journey, she overcomes geographical and gender barriers and to land in Berlin, where, surrounded by like-minded people, she tries to find herself without getting lost.
