What is particularly important to you in life?
It was always important for me to stay true to myself. I have values and principles in life that are important to me and of course also to my family. I also want to develop myself personally and never stop asking questions or having the courage to move things and get up.
What does family mean to you?
My family means so much to me, it comes before everything else. It is the meaning of my life. We give each other protection, love and trust. We give everything to each other and we don’t expect anything in return. That’s truly beautiful.
What character traits do your friends like to attribute to you?
A friend of mine once told me that I am incredibly enthusiastic and I can encourage people to make their dreams come true. I really liked that.
Which experience from your childhood do you like to tell?
There are so many wonderful moments of my childhood. But most of all I have probably told about how I should get our cow Kamilla from the village posture in Kazakhstan for the first time, getting lost terribly and only arriving home hours later. I’ve never been that scared in my life as I was then.
“I am basically inspired by people who have the courage to be different. People who have visions and skills that they believe in and the don't let anyone distract them.“
What are you particularly attached to?
I am attached to everything related to my daughter. For example, I cannot delete pictures of her even If I have the same motif 10 times, I can’t simply delete any of them.
Which is the best book you’ve ever read?
I can’t choose a favorite because I’ve read so many good ones. But I love reading biographies of inspiring personalities. I was really impressed by the biography of Steve Jobs, such an incredible visionary.
Is there any experience which has changed your life forever?
The birth of my daughter made me realize how to focus more on what is important in life and what is not. I think you get to learn this real quick when you have children. And overall I have also become more relaxed and easy going.
What do you appreciate about other people?
Positivity and honesty, people who want education and stay focused visionaries who want to make the world a better place.
Have you ever had pets?
In Kazakhstan we had a dog called Jimmy.
How old would you like to be forever?
The best age for me was 27. I already gained important experiences to know more about myself. That made me a lot more confident and I already knew about my strengths and weaknesses.
