In one sentence: What motivates you?

Making a positive change in our world and inspiring and rallying more to aspire for that.

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

The diversity of people determines the diversity of perspectives, thoughts, and insight that enable and drive innovation, which is a key component of digitalization. On the other hand, digitalization should include everyone, men as well as women, young as well as old…in brief, all aspects of diversity.

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

Yes, many actually. I try to learn from everything positive in each person I see around me. And I admire all women in tech, trailblazers who succeed and make ways for others behind to succeed, too, one of them being Sheryl Sanderberg.
