What does your perfect day look like?

My perfect day starts by waking up in the mountains in a cosy house surrounded by beautiful peaks and an incredible view of the valley. In winter the day would be filled with skiing until my legs hurt. In summer, the day probably involves me strapping on my hiking boots for a fulfilling hike with friends or family. A perfect day outside in the fresh air with snow or without, having had time to clear my mind, stocked up on a bit of adrenaline and endorphines and having had some interesting thoughtful conversations. The perfect end to the perfect day then includes a delicious home cooked meal, hot chocolate in front of the fire and a good movie or book.

What drives you crazy?

Food waste and an ignorance towards unsustainable lifestyles.

What do you respect most in people?

I respect people who have discovered their passions and pursue them sucessfully. I respect those who are able to recognize their strengths and weaknesses and aknowledge both.

What is your favourite cuisine?

Lebanese. There is nothing more delicious than an explosion of lebanese spices and herbs triggered by one tiny bite.

If you could possess one super-human power, what would it be?

I would love to fly, but strength and speed also seem very useful. I loved watching 'Smallville' and definately pictured myself as Superwoman in some other universe.
