Tell us your name, age, where you’re from and describe yourself in one sentence. My Name is Ronja Maria Magdalena. I’m 19 years old and I was born and raised in Styria and I am currently studying and living in Graz. I think I would say that I am a very open-minded, creative, nice and an empathic person.
Who’s your role model? And why? I think I can’t say that I have only one role model. The biggest role model in my life are my friends and my family each of them have a special place in my heart. I really look up to them and I admire every single of them.
What’s the dumbest thing you believed as a child? I think the dumbest thing I believed in was that it would be cool to stay awake longer than midnight.
Tell us your best joke! Sorry, no jokes on me.
What are your favorite sustainable brands? For the most parts I like to spend my time thrifting, so I don´t really have favourite sustainable brands.
What is your opinion on fast fashion? Fast fashion is a crucial issue for me because on the one side I am deeply sorry for how many clothes are thrown away every year and how this affects our future. On the other hand, I every now and then catch myself reaching for the cheaper one. Nevertheless, I try to put these habits aside and show people how great and necessary secondhand fashion is, in order to fight against fast fashion.
What’s your favourite healthy snack/food? I would say fruits in particular strawberries and grapes are my to go snack. Sorry guys for being basic here but when it comes to food, I just play it safe.
What comes to your mind when you hear the word individuality? For me individuality is to embrace everybody as they are. No matter from where they are, what they do, how they look or who they wanna be.
