What does working in the market research industry mean to you?
For me, working in the market research industry means attention to details, to be involved and sociable.
From whom in the market research industry have you learned most in your career?
Unfortunately, I can't name someone who could be considered a mentor for me since I am at the beginning of my career in market research.
If you were able to bring someone in our DataDiggers team, who would that person be, and why do you think they'd be great for our company?
I think that I will choose to bring my best friend because she’s a responsible person, and she'd be able to integrate quickly into the team. Plus she's a fast learner.
What was the most important challenge you had to go through in your career?
I can't think of any challenge in my career yet. I've worked in banking until recently, and it wasn’t very exciting.
What is making you get up from bed even when you have a bad day?
I like to think about each day as a new challenge. And usually, a good cup of coffee helps too!

I recall with great joy all my holidays and also all my childhood memories.
Can you name one hobby that you really enjoy?
I love travelling and I can't wait to get back to it soon.
If you could change something from the past, make a different decision, what would it be and why?
I think I would be better off making a better decision when I pick out a college since I realized that I don’t enjoy political science. Instead, I would be better off choosing something else, since it can help me in the future.
What does success mean to you?
To me, success means defying limits and always striving to surpass them.
What are you planning to do on your next vacation?
I would like to discover new lands on my next vacation, new cultures, and new traditions, and also find out more about the place I go.
What was your ‘dream career’ when you were little?
Since I enjoy working with children, and I enjoy passing on new information to them, I would have desired to be a teacher.
What do you think is the most important thing in life?
I think that the most important thing in life is to be healthy and mentally well and to have reliable people in your life who will always be there for you.
