About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME


I like to know and to understand things. While being an idealist, I strive to keep my feet on the ground. I find exact sciences astonishing, but I am a humanist. I generally have a lot of energy (people usually describe me as "naturally high") and I like doing things, but as everyone of us, I need motivation and a good environment. I enjoy meeting new cultures and new people, good talks and late-night deep conversations. I appreciate open-mindedness, common-sense, curiosity and honesty.

Reading is part of my daily life and I absolutely enjoy biking, hiking, concerts, going for a coffee or a beer, smiling and laughing.

PHILOSOPHY

"In an ill society, misfitting is a sign of health".

Always believe in random acts of kindness!

Interests

I am interested in everything that can be enriching in any way, so I am always ready and happy to broaden my field of interests. At the moment, I am interested to know more about human rights, gender studies, intercultural learning, arts and philosophy, ethics, the work in NGOs, all kinds of museums, history, languages, European and international development, environmental protection and last, but not least law. In some point I was also attracted by psychology and I have to confess that this old passion is haunting me sometimes.:)
