- Describe yourself in 3 words
Lively, Loyal and Clever
- What are the 3 things you can’t live without
Eyebrow pencil/brush, food, music
- If you could raid one woman’s closet who would it be?
Locally: CEO of ATA, Ronella Tjin Asjoe Croes

- What is one thing people don’t know about you?
I can be very sensitive and emotional.
- How did you get in the industry that you’re in?
By making sure I was academically equipped and well prepared to understand the media industry, work in it and have my professional degrees as my ‘backup’. Once I entered the workforce my career has been mostly shaped by a combination of hard/smart work, respecting my own professional work ethics, meeting the right people and not only creating windows of opportunities for myself but also daring to go for it by embracing these opportunities when the timing was right.
- Name one of your most special achievements career-wise so far, your big “hoorah” moment?
Conquering a personal fear of hosting my first conference with more than 500 people in the audience.
- Your must-have business tool/essential
My Iphone as a part of my daily routine, blot powder for when I’m on TV and confidence for everything else!
- One advice you would give to your 15-year-old-self?
Popularity is overrated. Get to know yourself, embrace who you are not who you think you’re supposed to be. Your best gift is liking and loving the person you see in the mirror.
- Favorite inspirational quote
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” ~Marilyn Monroe
