Personal infoWhich of your qualities do your colleagues most appreciate?
That I approach things with prudence and calmness. That I can listen attentively and ask questions when things are unclear. The clarity in what I say. And that I love to laugh – even about myselfWhat is your favourite part of the body and why?
My ears. Firstly, because they are perfect (so they’ve been telling me since I was little), secondly, because I need them to listen.What is your motto?
I want – I can – I will!
There was a time when I put the second step before the first. I thought the plan is “I can – I want – I will”. Finding myself doing things that I was able to do, but did not really want to, I understood that the right order is important: Only when I know that I want something, it is relevant if I can do it. If both apply: go for it!
When I was 12, I wanted to decipher the hyroglyphs. Unfortunately I was about 160 years too late with my idea. Six years later I dared to try the Cyrillic alphabet instead, which wasn’t trivial at all in the beginning. The Russian language has been one of my great passions since then.
