I volunteer my free time to help…
I don’t know if this can be called commitment, but I am very dedicated to the de-stigmatization of and education about mental illness. I speak openly about my own experiences and break this taboo again and again, especially in my private life. Nobody should be afraid to say: “Yes, I have a mental illness” – and I hope that I can make a small contribution to this.
What do you like most about GFD?
To be honest: all the benefits. In the beginning I was blown away by the fact that there is free coffee, cocoa and tea 24/7 at the machines. And that is just the beginning! When I hear from family and friends from other companies and industries, I really feel very lucky here.
