Hi! What’s your name?

Any nicknames?
Everyone calls me Ely. When I was a kid, my grandad used to call me Lily.

The nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?
I love recycling things to turn them into some interesting creations. For example, I’ve recently made a chandelier for my apartment using some branches I collected from the park.

The strangest talent you have?
I grew up on the countryside, where we used to light a fire in our fireplace every night. I would say I’ve always been pretty good at it.

What’s the three things still left on your bucket list?

  1. I would like to visit Alaska and see the Northern Lights.
  2. I would like to go and see the whales in Norway.
  3. I would like to get the opportunity to publish one of my books.


Your personal favorite place in Berlin?
Teufelsberg. It is with no doubt my favorite place here in Berlin. I find it very inspirational. I love its history and how it was then turned into this amazing centre of street art.

Couldn’t survive in Berlin without...
books. I buy and read so many books, it’s really crazy. They make my life better. I couldn’t imagine my life without books.

Got any favorite quotes or inspiration?
I would choose the one that is also written on the Berlin Wall, from Erich Fried. It says: “He, who wants the world to remain as it is, doesn’t want it to remain at all”.
