The best advice you ever got?
Not believing everything I think. (Especially helpful for self-critical thoughts ;-))

What are you learning right now that you’re not so good at yet?
As a mum of two little boys, I still have a lot of palaeontology to practise – especially dinosaur names.

What would you change if you had the power to do so?
Breaking stigmas around mental health.

Which superheroine power would you like to have?
I would love to have the superpower to speak all the languages of the world. That would not only be pretty cool, but also very practical.
