Since landing in Switzerland in 2017, I've been captivated by the diversity of this country. My passion lies in contributing to meaningful projects, often preferring the impactful yet understated role behind the scenes. This drive has led me to supporting the initiatives of community-driven organisations that inspire and educate.I cherish the balance of adventure and tranquility in my life. I love long walks and seeking new experiences both in my personal and professional life. Yet, in moments when I yearn for peace, I turn to my sewing machines for some "off time".
