Hello Fatima. Tell me something about you.
I have always been very active since childhood, and I could not even stay sat at the table during meals! My first true approach to running has been during middle school, with the 5 Mulini student run: after that I felt tired and satisfied, a combination that from that moment on has become indispensable for me. I also love singing and speaking in English, they always put me in a good mood. Another thing that makes me feel good is food, I’m very greedy and it’s a bit hard for me to follow a strict diet. Unfortunately I am also a very loud person, but in my defense I can say that that’s what happen when you grow up in a house with 6 brothers and sisters. To be honest, I’m also moody, but in my favor I must say that my zodiac sign is cancer, dominated by the Moon.
You’re studying politics and economics. Why this choice? It seems to be very challenging.
I studied administration, finance and marketing in high schools, that made me realize that I wanted to study more economy and law topics. And considering my great love for English, what better course of “politics and economics” entirely in English?
Apart from studying, you’re a runner. What kind of running do you like?
Any kind of running, as long as it is running! Although what I do best is undoubtedly “running late”! I am a chronic late parson and I admit to do it on purpose: I love doing things at the last minute and running against time to get everything done. Speaking more seriously, my specialty in athletics is speed: 400m.
How is your typical day?
Every day is different. I do not have a meticulously elaborate routine and I like it that way, the important thing is to get to the end of the day having done everything I had to do. Usually I don’t use alarm clocks, because I get up naturally after about 8 hours of sleep and because I honestly find them also highly traumatic, they remind me of when I went to high school! Also, as I said, I like the feeling of doing things in a hurry. It gives me the perfect adrenaline rush to start the day. For breakfast I often eat a toast with coconut oil and brown sugar, a must also when I’m late! I love both tea and yogurt, depending on the fruit that I choose to eat that morning. Lunch is always a meal “on the go” for me: I rarely can have lunch at home, much more often I prepare a lunch box made of rice and chicken, fish, vegetables and crackers etc. All healthy foods, which are also good cold. Overall my days are very different from each other: lectures at the university, training, study and work are arranged every day at different times. The common thread of every day is definitely the rush, running. Dinner is the only meal that I do calmly and during which I have try to eat healthier. And when I go to bed every night to organize the next day, a nice hot herbal tea on my bedside table can’t miss.
