Tell us your name, age, where you're from and describe yourself in one sentence. My Name is Fiona, I am 17 years old and I live in Vorarlberg/ Austria. I am a positive person who is looking for the best in every person.
Who’s your role model? And why? I would probably say that my role model is my sister. She thought me so many different things like: don‘t mind if someone talking about you, there‘s always a person that doesn’t like me, i should do my thing and be proud about myself.
What’s the dumbest thing you believed in as a child? If you eat the kernels of a watermelon, a melon tree will grow in your belly. The same was true of cherries and grapes, of course.
What are your favourite sustainable brands? I think I would say thrift stores. It’s a great idea that you can reuse clothes.
What comes to your mind when you hear the word individuality? Individuality for me is admirable, i really admire anyone who stands out, not because they are trying to, but more because they just do stuff they like and express themselves without the fear if judgement.
What’s your favourite healthy snack/food? Definitely banana pancakes! Easy and fast to make.
Has social media given you more confidence in expressing yourself? Yes, kind of. I love the idea of inspire other people with my look and pictures. You also learn to pass negative comments.
Tell us one good thing someone did for you that brought a smile to your face: It‘s not difficult to make me smile, probably you just need to smile at me and my day would be rescued.
