"I think the three main lessons learned from the Fellowship were: First, if I want to achieve something, I can do it. Second, focusing on the future brings great rewards. And third, risks can be viewed from two sides: opportunity or fear. In California, people seem to opt much more often for the opportunity perspective than people do in Switzerland. I have really learnt to never give up in my life, focus on the future and to see the good side of things in life."
