A delightful aspect of my life is my passion for painting. Whenever I find myself in need of an emotional or creative release, I turn to my canvas and brushes. The vibrant colors and the act of bringing imagination to life on a blank surface bring me immense joy. During the pandemic, I took this passion a step further and opened an Instagram account to share my artistic journey with a wider audience.

How would you describe the culture in your department?

The atmosphere within my team is incredibly supportive, with each member readily offering assistance and encouragement. I am grateful for the daily opportunities to expand my knowledge and skills, as my colleagues share their expertise willingly.

Outside of work, I love to paint, indulging in my passion for creativity and self-expression. I value leisure activities that bring joy and relaxation, such as reading, spending time in nature and engaging in fitness activities. I find balance in my life by pursuing activities that both stimulate my mind and nourish my soul.

 

What TV show or movie are you currently enjoying?

I am a big fan of binge-watching various shows on Netflix, particularly those that blend drama and humour. I am currently watching Manifest. However, my ultimate go-to series is the timeless classic Friends, which holds a special place in my heart. Whether I need a good laugh or simply seek some light-hearted entertainment, I always rely on Friends to lift my spirits.

 

If you had to host a dinner party for FISPAN, what theme would you choose?

I would host a cultural-fusion themed party to celebrate the diverse backgrounds and talents within the company. This theme would blend elements from various cultures, reflecting the multicultural background of the team members and creating a unique and vibrant experience. The menu would feature fusion cuisine that combines flavors and ingredients from different traditions. Moreover, it would be a fun and memorable way to bring the FISPAN team together and celebrate their shared values of inclusivity and collaboration.
