What were your childhood ambitions? To become a travel guide and travel all around the world.
What was your first full-time job? This is my first full-time job!
What was your first car? Volkswagen Polo.
Who was your pin-up as a teenager? It all started with Beverly Hills 90210…
What bad habits do you have? I always think I’m right until someone proves me wrong. I’m not easily convinced.
How do you like to relax? With a bath, a book and a glass of wine.
What is your favourite book, and why? It’s a tie between Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden, for the incredible way of drawing the reader into the Japanese and geisha culture, and The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruíz Zafón, about Barcelona during the Franco regime.
What was the first record you bought? The first Backstreet Boys album.
What is your ideal night out? Definitely with my friends; going dancing in a bar or a club.
If you could invite two people for dinner, who would they be, and why would you invite them? Oprah Winfrey, because I think she is an intelligent, interesting and powerful person, and Nelson Mandela, for the same reasons. I think the two of them would make good conversation.
What is your favourite movie and why? Dances with Wolves (1990) with Kevin Costner, about the Indians and the white men. Instead of explaining why they are different from each other, the movie emphasises the similarities and trivialises the differences between their cultures.
What sports teams do you support? Of course the Dutch national soccer team with the World Cup coming up!
What is your favourite food and drink? I would definitely say Italian food! And apart from wine, my favourite drink is a mix of Amaretto and cola.
What is your favourite holiday destination? I always like to explore new places, but sun, sea and beach are a must!
If you could build your house anywhere, where would it be? In Tuscany, Italy.
What do you begrudge spending money on? I would begrudge spending money on a speeding ticket, but luckily I have never got one yet!
Have you ever broken the law? No.
What makes you happy? Spending time with my friends.
What makes you angry? Racism.
If you could be a superhero, what superpower would you choose to have and why? I would be Zorro and do my best to right the wrongs in the world.
What was your biggest mistake in life? Nothing, as otherwise I would not be the person I am today.
What was your luckiest break? Being able to study in Seville (Spain), because I learned so much during that period; not only studies-related but also about the culture, the people and about myself. And I’ve made some deep friendships during that time.
What is your best piece of advice? Playing it safe is the riskiest choice you can make.
If you weren’t doing your present job, what would you be doing? I would be backpacking through South America.
If you could be God for the day, what miracle would you perform? I would cure all diseases.
Can money buy happiness? Money can buy things that make you happy.
What has been the best moment in your career? Being given the opportunity to work for an international company like The GCC Group which puts me in a completely new labour ambiance that I haven’t experienced before. Above all, being able to flourish my skills in marketing.
What would you like to be doing in five years’ time? I would like to see myself successful in marketing and communications in an international company and I want to spend some more time abroad, travelling or working.
