What is the most important thing that your personal journey has taught you so far?
To never give up, always look forward and accept challenges. Fight gracefully and even the greatest loss hides victory.

Which woman, public figure and/or style icon has influenced you the most, in which way, and why?
I admire Oprah Winfrey, a woman born in poverty who became a screen queen, a media persona, a writer, actress, show woman and equally excellent in everything she does. Totally self-made, a real doer, a remarkable woman! Yet, she used her success to give back to people through her philanthropy. I consider Coco Chanel another unique figure in the fashion world, who taught women to wear trousers and free themselves from norms.

What inspires you?
Life itself inspires me. There are small miracles in every moment, in everyday we get to live. I consider motherhood to be one of these miracles.

How do you spend your free time? What’s your greatest hobby?
I love listening to music of the 60s, American music and jazz, as well as reading, mainly biographies. I find it fascinating to learn about people’s lives, journeys, accomplishments and failures. There’s so much to absorb.

What do you believe is your greatest achievement?
No other achievement, however big or small, can be compared to experiencing motherhood.

What is your life moto?
Tomorrow is another day. Learn from the past, live in the present, dream of the future.
