You´re wondering what I’m doing professionally? Yes, that makes two, I´m also wondering sometimes 😉 Just kidding, didn´t we all dream of being a doctor, ballerina or stewardess when we were younger? If you are a child, everything EVERYTHING is possible. When I grow up, I become an astronaut.
But at some point, you the moment arises when you have to take a direction. And people (aka mum and dad ;)) expect that you know what you want to do in your life.

Pretty easy to explain: a Superwoman, who can do everything 😉 No, but honestly, the job involves lots of different tasks, including typical office work, like calendar- and email-management, research, etc. But furthermore it also comes down to travel and event planing (oh my god, my dream!), social media marketing and a ton more.
In future I certainly want to realise my own ideas and projects, but this needs time and obviously contacts in the business world as well.
Soon I´ll tell you heaps more about my plans – if you have any questions, just send me a mail or comment below.
