When I first started this blog, I had the very idea of finding people who want to change the world, who are brave enough to be themselves and who are not afraid to dream big. Kristin is for sure one of these people.
A girl of style, Kristin has taken upon herself another mission to accomplish. She is now running to be a Vice-Chair of Activities and Development at the University of Strathclyde, where she’s in her second year of pursuing a double degree of Hospitality and Tourism Management with Management Science. A dreamer who believes she can fly (and does it!). A visionary who strives to bring a change.
Without further ado, I present you Kristin in a very honest and inspirational interview.
1. How would you describe yourself to a complete stranger making sure he/she never forgets you?
I have found something very interesting here in UK. If you tell people you know 6 languages they tend to look at you with very wide eyes and they surely never forget that fact about you. However, I have never thought this could be something so impressive about me before. It is just something that I am very passionate about. It gives me such unexplainable pleasure to be able to speak with native people in their own language.
2. What’s your biggest talent?
Empathy. I have always wanted nothing else but to help the people around me. My close friends know they can always approach me and say ‘’Kristin, I need to talk’’ and they will be given advice or help with whatever I can.
I tend to use this in my work and volunteering as well. I like answering questions and helping people develop themselves further.
3. Where do you get your motivation from?
From my friends, family and everyday challenges. Whenever I make even the smallest step forward, I share it with my closest ones. This is my way of celebrating success. After that I roll up my sleeves again and try to go even further.
However, nothing motivates you more than passion. If you are doing something that you love, then you can be sure that motivation will be coming to you naturally.
