Why is the Peers4You project important to you?

I was already involved in the concept development for the peer project. Of course, I want to be part of its implementation and be of assistance to the students now.

What makes you unique as a Peers4You advisor?

My optimistic attitude and my patience distinguish me as a peer advisor. I’m good at maintaining an overview in complex situations and perseverance is another one of my positive traits.

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

I have made the experience that my cheerful manner is contagious and motivates other people. In a room full of people, I’m usually a haven of peace and this is what’s most typical of me: my positive and motivating nature.

What motto do you pursue in life?

When I concentrate on a goal, I pursue it consistently but not without regard for the people around me. The goals I set for myself are easily worth the efforts it takes to achieve them. The slogan “What’s worth the prize is always worth the fight” sums up my attitude nicely.

What is your favourite hobby?

Books. I cannot stand to have unread books on my shelf.
