Where has been your favorite travel destination and why?

KF: My favorite place to travel to is Spain. I love Spain because of the weather, the beach, and the waterparks.

Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?

KF: A hobby I have is cycling, I enjoy this as it helps me relax and wind down after work.

What show are you currently binge-watching?

KF: A show I am currently binge-watching is Killing Eve.

What's your idea of a perfect day?

KF: My idea of a perfect day is lying by a pool with the sun blazing and having no responsibilities that day.

What skill would you most like to learn?

KF: A skill I would like to learn is public speaking or become better at presenting.

What's your most-used productivity hack?

KF: Planning days ahead of time — For example, If I know I must do something in 3 weeks' time I record it in a diary and I look at this diary every day to see the tasks I need to complete. This helps me to not forget anything.

What piece of advice would you give yourself at the beginning of your career?

KF: A piece of advice that I would give myself when I just started my career was to not worry as much and have as much fun in the moment as you will always have help and guidance from others who surround you.
