What are your tasks at ULT?

I support the team in the press and public relations department. I started in June 2023 and am very happy to be at ULT.

Why are you involved in ULT?

I was already volunteering as a mentor in an educational association and when I thought about what else I could do and increase my contribution to education, my path crossed with ULT. It’s a great feeling to be part of a team that provides education and food to children. That is priceless.

What was your favourite subject and what was your hate subject at school?

Statistics was my only hate subject:) My favorite subjects at school were music and communication. Both subjects still accompany me through life today.

Where do you see ULT in 5 years?

Five years is a very long time, but I see myself continuing to support the ULT team and being part of valuable activities to help more children.

Tell a funny/awkward/beautiful story from your school days.

I think I have many stories I can tell, but I’ll tell you my favorite one. 🙂

When I was walking with my friend at school during break time, I slipped and fell. While I was falling, I held my friend’s arm and we fell to the ground together. We started laughing. Meanwhile, our teacher came and also started laughing when she saw us. My friend and I couldn’t get up from laughing for a while.
