Share with us something about Latvia, where you’re from.
It’s a very green and eco-friendly country, and we’ve invested a lot in green technology.
What do you like most about Singapore?
I’ve been working here for three years, and I’m really enjoying myself here, even if I miss home sometimes. Singapore’s given me so much, in terms of exposure to culture and meeting new people—and of course I enjoy the food!
Share something interesting about you.
I’m trying to be a pilates instructor; that’s one of my passions in life. I think that to succeed in life, we need to have a career, opportunities to teach and mentor others, and also enough space to be alone.
What about pilates interests you?
I think it’s a good combination of your mind, your breathing, and attention to detail. It also helps to prevent back pain and other injuries that come from having a weak core or bad posture. I think it’s much better to prevent a problem rather than having to cure it.
Do you have any tips for people who are just entering the workforce?
Find your passion, follow it, and work hard at it. Turn up every day and do your best.
If a theme song played every time you walked through the door, what would it be and why?
