As I unlocked the briefcase
I wasn't exactly sure what I was finding.
As a curious five-year-old, this wasn't the first time that I stumbled upon a long-forgotten treasure tucked away at my grandma's attic, but this time was different. I couldn't help but feel a sense of intrigue and curiosity as I was discovering the content of the weather-worn case.
Inside were an assortment of captivating items: tiny swords, sponge balls, an incomplete deck with peculiar symbols on each card.. It was obvious that these objects had once belonged to someone a while ago.
I couldn't help but wonder: Who would own such fascinating items, and what compelled my grandmother to save this mysterious case, tucked away in the depths of her attic?
My name is Katalin (pronounced like Catalina Island, but without the A at the end), and this is how I begun discovering the art of magic!
Despite show business not running in my family, I was fortunate to have the continuous support of my parents, which allowed me to participate in various magic competitions not only in my homeland of Hungary but also in neighboring countries.
I listed some of my favorite moments at the performances page, where you can journey back in time and discover some of my projects.
