My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Each human being must learn to be the author of his own story: no one is free in the world at large without first being free within. He who wins without risk triumphs without glory.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Life is beautiful and brief like dew drops. My biggest fear is not living it intensely in this short existential trajectory.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Humility, the ability to put yourself in someone else's shoes, and the ability to see the same problem from multiple angles.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. In the middle of a field, in the forest. I need solitude. For some it is distressing but to me an invitation to internalize, to search for myself.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I would be a bird, who, even after suffering nocturnal tempests, in the morning rejoices jubilantly.
