Juno is a proud New Yorker – she recently recommended a stay at the Plaza to a family friend, because “that’s where Elouise lives” *. Juno has a little sister Maris (almost 2 years); she speaks German with her family and English at school. Right now she is busy learning to ride a bike, to learn to swim and to horseback ride. Her longstanding passion is ballet. Her mom, Nele Husmann, is a journalist.
