In one sentence: What motivates you?

The opportunity to develop and learn, as well as creating tangible results and positive impact in my organization and environment.

In two sentences: In your opinion, why do diversity and digitalization belong together?

A diverse set of people is able to look at challenges from all the different angles, unlock innovation, and open new opportunities both for companies and for individuals to grow. I see digitalization as an enabler of diversity globally and the two together are an inseparable and winning team.

In three sentences: Do you have a role model? If yes, who and why?

Claudia Nemat, board member of Deutsche Telekom for Technology and Innovation. I admire her brilliance, strength, and career path; she is not only the only woman on our board but also the one leading the core of our business—technology.

Your tip for newcomers and young talent:

Ask for help. 90% of time you will get it. 2. Do not wait until you are ready! Take that challenge/job/task and learn how to do it on the go.

Your favorite social media channel:

Instagram.

Your favorite App:

Spotify, definitely.

A book that changed your life:

Tough question for a bookworm. I would say that How to Win Friends and Influence People comes close.

What is your goal for 2019?

Goals 🙂 My first priority is to finish my part-time MBA and launch my next product. The next step is to evaluate potential job exchange. In parallel to that, I would like to perfect my German as well as story-telling skills and do a TEDx talk. Since I had hardly any free days this year, I am dreaming about one relaxing holiday, walking in lavender fields in Provence or wine tasting in Tuscany. And yes, I definitely want to visit my parents more often.
