1. What do you miss most about home?
What I miss the most is the family! However, as Luxembourg is not far away, I'm driving home every weekend.
2. What have you found rewarding about working in such a multinational environment as SHAPE?
It is a great opportunity for me to get to know people from other nations, make new friends and work together.
3. What is something unique about Luxembourg that others might not know?
Luxembourg's National Day is celebrated annually on June 23 and is meant to recognise the birthday of Grand Duchess, Charlotte. However, her actual birthday was January 23 but the date was changed and celebrations were shifted to the summer for the more favourable weather conditions. Now, National Day is celebrated throughout the country with fireworks, live music and other outdoor festivities.
4. During normal non COVID times how would you usually celebrate this national day?
I would usually celebrate this national day by giving a Rock&Pop open-air concert with the former military cover band "AWACS", immediately after the military ceremony.
