Q: What's your favorite time of the day?

A: Spending time with my family, who I do not see as often as I would love to.

Q: What's your biggest strength?
A: My friends are saying I am the most loyal and wide-hearted person. I always try to check my circle.

I do not think too much what could go wrong instead I think what could go right.

Q: What's your biggest weakness?

Q: Your favorite dish?
A: Pasta! I love nothing more than good seafood pasta.

Q: The one thing you love most about running 92 THE STUDIO?
A: There are many things. The most important aspect for me is that I am my own boss and I can manage my time by myself. Further, I love that I am building something of value and generating a value for other people. And of course fashion was always my biggest passion, so doing what I love on a daily basis and living from this is something I am super grateful for.

Q: The one thing you hate most about running 92 THE STUDIO?
A: That you have to be always available for business partner, suppliers etc. It is not easy to put your phone aside when you have dinner with your friends, I really have to force myself to do so.

A: Coffee with oat milk or almond milk.

Q: What's one place you've always dreamed of traveling to?

A: I would say a good pair of straight blue jeans, a perfect white shirt and high quality black high heels.

Q: Your other passions besides the fashion industry?
A: I love to travel and to cook. I love to try out new recipes and invite my friends for dinner.
I am also diving deeper into the real estate business in the last years, which I think is super interesting as well.

Q: What's the most adventurous thing you've done in your life?

Q: One advice you would give to your younger self?
A: Do not worry too much about life, your job, your studies etc. Just be a kind human and work hard. Everything will work out in life.
