It was a rainy afternoon at the end of September when we met Robin on a field somewhere in Germany.
What is your biggest fear?
Disappointing myself is one of my biggest fears. I always want to put all my heart and soul into the things I do – whether it’s work or just common business. At the end of the day, it’s important that I am happy, not anyone else.
What do you think would make the world a better place?
This world, as we know it nowadays, is actually just a cruel place. We destroy ourselves while acting selfish. I think if everyone would just do a little more for this planet, we could change a lot – but start with yourself!
Do you have a role model? Who would that be?
My mother always is and will be my idol. She’s the toughest girl I know! She always taught me to face the challenges of life and led me through every crisis. No matter how bad the situation is, she’s keeping cool! She is just amazing and I love her with all my heart. I hope I can do such a great job as a father as she does as my mother.
What are you proud of?
I am proud of everything that happened to me, even if it’s actually bad.
I believe that everything happens for a reason.
If all the bad stuff wouldn’t happen to me, I would not be the guy I am today and wouldn’t have reached what I already reached!
What would 10 year old you think of you now?
“Why are you not a baker by trade?”
What are you impressed by?
I am impressed by honesty.
Our world is built of lies. Whether it’s politics or interpersonal relationships.
Honesty is what really matters in life and the biggest present you can receive.
What is your biggest weakness?
I worry a lot.
And when I say “a lot”, I do mean “a lot”.
Sometimes I feel like my head never stops overthinking and worrying.
What was the first thought you had waking up this morning?
First things first: coffee or black tea! That’s the first thing I got in my mind when I wake up. Drinking coffee and planning what the day will be about is my morning routine, I would say.
