“We cannot solve a crisis without treating it as a crisis. […] And if solutions within the system are so impossible to find, then maybe we should change the system itself?” – Greta Thunberg

I am currently working on…

Since June of 2021 I started working on Project Solid because I also believe in “your data your choice”. I spend my time on the open source SolidOS code working with volunteer around the world guided by Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

I write about my experience in the Solidverse here.

About me

I like a good view of a mountain (like the ones in the Alps) or hills (like the ones in Transylvania). To get to such views I sometimes hike and I like to travel. My favorite seasons to see these views are spring and autumn.
I like to see, chat or simply be in the presence of my friends. For this I often create meeting groups and organize stuff… and I love it! 🙂
I like to be part of a community and feel I belong! For this reason I was always part of student organizations, spend my free time on extracurricular activities and projects and founded communities (read my blog entry about volunteering) . This is another reason why I like to organize stuff 🙂

I like lines of code and especially the ones that I can fix and make work as intended 😉 It is fascinating what computers can do when we write in a text file instructions in a computer language.

I find it humbling to be considered trustworthy such that people can ask me for advice or simply tell me about themselves. It is fascinating to understand a person’s motivation and needs on an inclusion and belonging level.

How to use my website

On the left you will see different categories I write about.

About me – are posts in which I share about what I believe in and how I think.

Volunteering – contains everything about what I did/do in my free time. However Women Techmakers which was/is a big part of my life has its own category.

Programming – consists of different coding projects and endeavours. Some specific ones have their own category like:  Semantic Web, Tutorials or Solid.

I also tried out Entrepreneurship for a year on the topic of DEIB.
