«Navigating the world through language»

Language is the key. When I’m dealing with clients, I can only empathise with them if we both fully understand one another. Obviously my foreign language skills help, but what is even more important is to not use confusing technical jargon, and to talk to clients from their level of knowledge. Legal work, too, is all about words. I am able to decipher matters of formal law with expertise and linguistic precision and to translate with creativity.

I love writing. I aspire to formulate not just successful but also short and concise legal briefs. I used to want to work as a journalist in crisis areas but now I can make a difference in the world as a specialist in white-collar crime and providing pro bono legal assistance for disadvantaged people.

Travelling through remote areas always restores my zest for life. I carry little in my backpack but arrive back home rich with experiences: flexibility, serenity, and contact with completely different people from all walks of life. And when I can’t get out into the world, my languages open up new opportunities – and the world comes to me
