What three items would you bring to a deserted island and why?
I’d bring a pocket knife, a sleeping bag and a never-ending book for good company.
What’s your comfort food?
I’ll say a lentil salad!
Tattoos or bare skin?
In my opinion they both look good, it just depends on the style of the person that’s getting tattooed.
What’s your favourite season, and which season is it the easiest to be fashionable?
Summer is definitely my favourite time of the year, and it’s also quite easy to style as you have less pieces to choose from.
What’s your go-to cocktail on a date?
I love a good gin tonic with a slice of lemon.
Do you like to cook? What’s the best dish you’ve ever made and the worst?
Cooking is great when you have the right equipment and ingredients! My best dish so far was probably lamb chops with ratatouille and roast potatoes, while the worst one was a pizza I once forgot in the oven.

What’s your favourite TV show of all time?
It currently is ‘Futurama’, although I really enjoyed the new ‘Loki’ series too.
What did you dream of becoming as a child?
I dreamt of becoming a pilot!
Do you have a favourite piece of art?
Absolutely, yes. It’s ‘Der Springteufel’ by Felix Woeller, who’s a friend of mine.
What’s your idea of a perfect day?
A perfect day, for me, would be having a vacation with my friends in a town we’ve never been to.
Who’s your fashion role model?
To be honest with you, I don’t have a fashion role model at the moment.
What’s the best present you’ve ever gifted and the best you’ve received?
The parachute jump I got for my birthday is the best present I’ve ever received. On the other hand, the best present I’ve ever given is probably impossible to tell.

What’s your weirdest quality?
I can memorise any city map.
What’s your favourite thing to do on a night out with friends?
I enjoy bar-hopping and socialising, meeting new people.
What’s you favourite day of the week and why?
It honestly could be any day of the week, depending on the events happening in that week.
Do you stay up-to-date with the news?
Yes, definitely, there’s so much interesting stuff happening in science right now!
Sweet or savoury?
Savoury, as I believe industrial sugar is disgusting and addicting.
What’s you favourite piece of clothing in your wardrobe?
It’s an original Hawaiian shirt.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
I’d go for a sort of supreme intellect.
