What do you do at MemotoI am part of the community team. Besides handling the social media platforms, I also provide customer support.

What’s one thing we should know about you? Don’t ever offer me cookies. I will finish up the whole box.

What book have you recently finished, or are currently reading? I have a really short attention span, so I tend to read several books simultaneously. I am currently reading Night, Pride and Prejudice, Ad Hoc at Home and Likeable Social Media by Dave Kerpen. These books probably sum up my interests – History, Literature, Cooking and Marketing. 

Favorite non-work-related website: It’s hard to pinpoint one since I have such varied interests. But Lifehack and BBC Goodfood are extremely addictive. Way too addictive.

What did you want to be as a child? A cashier at some point in time, but my biggest dream as a kid was to buy tons of pillows and donate them to children in a third world country. Don’t ask me why, but somehow someday, I still hope to fulfil this dream of mine, no matter how ridiculous this may sound :)

Best advice you have ever received: Say Yes. This has led me to some of the best experiences and opportunities in my life e.g. SSWC 2013. I was pretty hesitant on going initially, but Oskar managed to convince me and I ended up having one of the most inspiring and fun experiences ever.

Favorite Quote: Boredom is a choice. Also, always keep your eyes open. Keep watching. Because whatever you see can inspire you.

Moment you would like to relive: My childhood, living in my grandparent’s house.
