Behind me lies an incredible exciting weekend in Cologne, where I did not only meet countless amazing people but also learned a lot about myself. I was invited to the Photokina (the worlds biggest photography event that takes place every second year) to be a speaker for Adobe – and as I write this I’m still having a hard time believing that all of this really happened.
I don’t think I have ever been so nervous before – I also never had a stage talk that was simultaneously broadcasted with a live stream – and I’m gonna need a lot more practice to stay as calm as I would like to be with things like this BUT it made me step out of my comfort zone and the whole experience itself was totally worth it!
I am so lucky that everybody I met there, no matter how successful or famous, was super nice and encouraging to me and of course to have the incredible Adobe team standing behind me! This counts for everybody in the team, but especially for Sven; thank you for always having my back, for every time you sit down with me to calm me down and make me believe in myself, for introducing me in such a lovely way that I cannot stop smiling for the next ten minutes and for announcing my biggest dream come true: That I am gonna be on the road to Adobe MAX in October, a 5 days road trip through Cali that ends at the worlds biggest technic conference in San Diego. Words can’t describe how honored I feel to be part of this ❤️❤️❤️
