How do you like your coffee ?
My coffee is my only drug, so there is no morning without breakfast and coffee and my dear ones. No sugar and no milk. Black-black coffee, sometimes with fresh squeezed orange juice aside. And my favourite coffee above all, Italian espresso.
What’s your favorite app?
Keynote. I do use the app, however, to practice and run-through my presentations before I go on stage. I’ve been doing a lot of public speaking lately, and I love to practice. Practice makes me feel confident, and it allows me to further enhance my presentation, timing and flow.
Name 3 things you always carry with you.
My IPhone, my IPhone, my IPhone – the black box of my entire (lately) life. And my wallet, with cards and precious pictures, and few jewels I wear always.
What’s your favorite place in Bucharest ?
Stavropoleos Church from Old Town, Loewendal Museum, Infinitea Tea House.
How did you spend your last holiday ?
At country side, in Moldavia, with my two kids. It was an unusual very short holiday because I changed my job this summer and killed my family holiday.
What newspapers/magazines do you read ?
Avantaje magazine, Psychologies, 7 Seri and recently… CARIERE and HR Manager. But in a very professional way because I am the new editor in chief of CARIERE magazine, a huge challenge.
What colour is your kitchen ?
Light blue walls with beige for furniture.
Name 3 favorite hobbies.
Watching movies, dancing tango, gardening.
The most important person in your life is…?
Me! It is my recent huge revelation. And, very predictable, my fabulous two kids and my extended family.
What is your favorite car?
Not so predictable, I cannot drive! But I love Mini Cooper for its feminine elegance and Volvo for safety.
If you wouldn’t have your actual career/job, what would you like to do (as a career/job) ?
I would like to be a trainer, coach or mentor for women in distress (domestic violence victims, single mothers and so ones). I was told I am doing it in a very special way. With a lot of empathy, because I was one of them.
What do you like best about Romania?
The old manors and castles, the mountains, the old monasteries in the mountains and forests, the caves, the wineries, Mocanita train from Maramures.
