Why is the Peers4You project important to you?

In these fast-paced times where everyone is under pressure to perform, more and more people are at risk of feeling left alone with their fears, concerns and problems. The media create ideals that are hard to fulfil – and if you fail to meet those ideals, you’re likely to feel excluded from society. I’m not willing to just stand by and watch this development.

What distinguishes you as a Peers4You advisor?

My greatest resource as an advisor is my ability to listen attentively. I’m very good at putting myself in another person’s shoes, while distancing myself from their life situation at the same time.

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

I usually wear shirts. When I’m at the St. Pölten UAS, I tend to spend my breaks in the basement playing table tennis. Alternatively, you can see me eating fruit and veggies (apples, carrots, etc.).

What motto do you live by?

“It is the lives we encounter that make life worth living.” (Guy de Maupassant)

I am the most important person in my life,
you are the most important person in your life.

What is your favourite hobby?

Cooking! It was a long and rocky road lined with many obstacles from first building an awareness of what a healthy diet is. Now I can genuinely say that my whole life has changed along with my diet. I try to cook fresh, mostly vegan meals with (regional) organic ingredients every day.
