I often tend to say that my gender, my identity and my values enter a room before I enter it, so it's also just being me and having a discourse that allows you to act and to be an activist already. And then it's also about doing your research, supporting all your knowledge to have a real background and arguments when we have debates. This is what inspires me and enriches me the most, but at the same time it is the biggest challenge, to have a discussion and meet the other person and try to debate constructively to move forward together.
I had once read that the oak tree attracts lightning but also symbolises majesty and strength and so I might be a little bit bold enough to say that I would be an oak tree.

First of all, listening to the social justice movements, I think this is very important. Voices are being heard in the public space and in the media and we have to take time to listen to them, to see them, to hear them, to digest them too. And we have to listen to the people who know better than us because I think we are all imperfect beings, we all have to learn from the people who can teach us. And even I have no background or training in terms of the environment, ecology or biodiversity, but I am in politics to learn and I know that there are many people who are professionals and experts and they are there to help me move forward.
