For a while, it looked as if Anne-Marie could get a parole: Her mother went to Germany to study and took Anne-Marie along. But it was out of the frying pan and into the strudel.
"I definitely went into culture shock in Germany," she declares. "The schools are extremely strict and if you don't live up to their high standards, you're an outcast. You had to excel or you weren't accepted. For fun, kids in Germany study and take music lessons.
Plus, all my classes were in German, naturally, so I had a bit of a handicap. I managed to pick it up pretty quickly, just by being around the other kids, but the first three months were pretty rough. I still keep up on my German, but I don't run into many people I can talk to here."
Here, for Anne-Marie, is Malibu, where she finds the lifestyle considerably different. Now, the discipline is self-imposed. Fitness is king on the beach and Anne-Marie is fit.
She even teaches other people how to be fit in her job at a men's health club in West Hollywood, and for the past eight years has been studying ballet as well.
Anne-Marie hopes to parlay all that body work into a future in fashion modeling. "It's funny, because I remember having my portrait done as a child, and I cried. Now I love it. Just like my poetry, it's a way of expressing myself. Sometimes I get so into it that everything around me disappears, and I just get into the camera, one on one."
Long-term, Anne-Marie wants to be an architect. For now, she is content to enjoy the Malibu sun. "I love it here, the ocean and the mountains. I look forward to going home in the evening."
When she does get home, Anne-Marie turns reflective, writing poetry or making entries in her diary. She's also a music lover, playing piano and violin and listening to classical and rock.
And if she had an extra wish, one she could just blow: "I've always wanted to be in a James Bond movie."
