Why is the Peers4You project important to you?

I strongly believe that psychological problems and crises should be taken as seriously as physical ones.

What is typical of you as a person (trademark, special characteristics, etc.)?

I see my main task as lending you an ear and supporting you in finding a solution or coping strategy for your problem/crisis. I can be of particular assistance when it comes to relationships, no matter if it’s about love or friendship. Many people are victims of harassment, abuse or violence but choose not to talk about it – speak out! Words are much more powerful than silence.

What motto do you live by?

“Speak and open up your mind, it´s something you should do all the time. Keep exploring, seek and find – you know you might surprise yourself.” (Jack Garrat – Surprise Yourself)

What is your favourite hobby? Helping people as a paramedic, making music.
