1. Hva motiverer deg til å stå opp hver morgen?

The thing that motivates me the most to get up in the morning is the need to create a legacy to leave my son with. My parents passed away last year and their deaths made me aware of just how short life is and that life can change within a split second. I fear leaving this earth without having left a mark.

2. Har du noen gang vært forelsket?

Yes, about 3 times! I love love and I’m a hopeless romantic. One thing I’ve acquired with age is being cautious in love, something which is necessary to navigate this new age love (online dating).

3. Hvor er du om fem år In 5 years?

I hope to be a married mother of 2, an entrepreneur who’s continuing her parents legacy (my father worked 29 years with Medecins Sans Frontieres and left a big mark on all his missions). I hope to be one of the top female developpers and if god allows me the chance, I want to be able to sponsor the education of 20 students in Africa.

4. Har du noen forbilder?

Yes, I do have one, my role model is Nelson Mandela, reading his autobiography changed my life almost immediately. He had an aura and a way with words that would make people feel so strong and empowered. I have no political ambitions but I have dreams of making a big change in my two home countries: France and Kenya and he inspired me so much to go for it!

5. Om du kunne ha en superkraft: Hva/Hvilken ville det være?

I wish I had the ability to teleport, for professional reasons I’m not able to see my son all the time and sometimes I wish I could teleport myself to give him a kiss and put him to sleep or cuddle with him. Teleportation would also really come in handy when there is a lot of traffic !

6. Hva er lykke for deg?

Hapiness for me is being in my own home, having no debts and being with my family. One of my favorite things to do is to make a good elaborate homecooked meal for my family whilst drinking tea and dancing to African music, hearing the sound of my son’s laughter and seeing my family happy.

7. Hva er favorittmåltidet ditt?

My favorite meal is sushi!

8. Om du kunne ha middag med hvem som helst: Hvem ville du valgt?

If I could have dinner with anyone it would be Tyler Perry, He is a fantastic example of rags to riches and I would love to pick his brain and find out how to emulate his success. One other person I would love to have dinner with is Mwenesi Musalia, an excellent Kenyan businessman who is very inspiring.

9. Om du kunne ha vært hvor som helst i verden: Hvor ville du helst vært nå?

I would love to be in Japan at the moment, I hope to visit Japan next year!

10. Har du et livsmotto? Hva er i så fall ditt livsmotto?

I have 2 mottos:

1) We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is not an act, but a habit.

2) It’s not over until I win
