1) THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO YOU IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS?

Last year I experienced a major crisis and had to take a break from basically everything. Looking back, it was one of the best things that could happen to me. Fighting this crisis made me so much stronger and self-confident and it helped me grow as a human being.

2) THE WORST THING THAT HAPPENED TO YOU IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS?

Looking back I sometimes feel that the crisis deprived me of so many great moments, of life in general, and it makes me sad to think about what I might have missed. So yes, the best thing that happened to me was in a way also the worst.

3) YOUR BIGGEST WISH FOR THE NEAR FUTURE?

For myself: To make a living as a writer. For all of us: Finding the means to fight climate change and to continue the fight for true equal rights for women everywhere.

4) YOUR BIGGEST WORRY FOR THE NEAR FUTURE?

The hate speech, disrespect and aggression that’s been spreading in politics and social media over the past years. This hate and aggression is tearing whole countries and societies apart and I’m truly worried where this is leading to in the future.

5) A CONTEMPORARY WOMAN YOU CURRENTLY ADMIRE?

Actually, there are two: Angela Merkel and the Queen for how they are standing their ground in (often toxic) male-dominated environments. This should inspire all of us!

6) A ONE-SENTENCE MESSAGE TO OTHER WOMEN

Trust your guts, stand up for yourself and dare to live the life you want to live!
