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

Once again, I’ve decided to take a leap: I’m moving to New York City to join my boyfriend, who’s working there. I feel similar as when I moved to London; it’s an instinctive decision made with a lot of hopefulness, positivity and excitement.

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

Not per se the worst, but a reminder of the fickle nature of freelancing was when a client of mine went bankrupt, which was a financial shock but also a moment when you feel destabilized and are forced to think of where you want to be. Now what I write it down, that’s not so bad.

3) YOUR BIGGEST WISH FOR THE NEAR FUTURE?

To find a balance between my and my partner’s needs, to find a balance in all life’s conflicting currents within myself.

4) YOUR BIGGEST WORRY FOR THE NEAR FUTURE?

If I will be able to maintain and grow my career in NYC in a way that I am happy with.

5) A CONTEMPORARY WOMAN YOU CURRENTLY ADMIRE?

That’s a terribly difficult question. I admire different women for different reasons: Zadie Smith for her brilliant writing, TyLynn Nguyen for her poise, Emily Weiss for her business sense, Chloe Wise for her strong artistic vision…

6) A ONE-SENTENCE MESSAGE TO OTHER WOMEN?

With the horrifying abortion law of Alabama in mind: always demand and defend your rights as a person and as a woman.
