Aichurek is the daughter of migrant parents and has a disabled mother. Her father left them years ago. At the age of 12, she had to go to work to look after her family. During that time she learned about her rights as a child and subsequently stood up for them. She also told other children about their rights, in order to keep them out of the same misery that she had been through. Aichurek is especially focused on the right of children to a non-violent environment at school and at home. Together with some friends, she set up a private foundation to create more awareness, by thorough training and theater performances.
