1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Yes, after my great great great (puuh) grand mother. I like my name in the sense that it is short and uncomplicated. On the other hand, no one knows how to pronounce it when I am abroad. You know when you order a coffee to go at Starbucks? They write everything from Elena, Eli, Erin, Pili, to Hielo (doesn’t make much sense does it). When it comes to my sir name, I’m named after my father. Abroad I always say, “like the cell phones”.
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
When Rut (the family dog passed away), before that, when I did yoga in London and a lot of tensions were released from my body. The yoga experience was very special and it made me realize even more how the body and mind is interconnected.
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
When I write fast, no – then I let the practical part of my brain win over the artistic one. When I concentrate on writing neatly I can produce some ok lettering.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
Chicken. When it comes to meat, I basically alternate between chicken and fish. I rarely buy meat going grocery shopping, trying to get my protein from other sources such as eggs, chicken and beans. There are a lot of reasons, from cancer to environmental issues, but I haven’t come to the point turning into a vegetarian. When someone invites me to dinner I do eat and enjoy the taste of meat.
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
No, and I cannot picture myself having my own kids either. In the future, what I would love to do is to take care of a foster kid and to do something good for that person and for society.
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Yes hopefully haha!
7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
What I do use is a lot of irony!
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
At the right place I would (adventure trip to New Zeeland anyone)! I have tried the world’s tallest skycoaster in Orlando (over 90 m high). It is like a mix between a bungy jump and a swing. I didn’t like the feeling while I was doing it at all, but afterwards it felt amazing.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
Oatmeal, eat it every morning :)
