“I joined the SRC in 2009 as a volunteer; raising funds for victims of forgotten disasters in Switzerland and abroad as well as having co-presided the Swiss red cross ball for four years.
My work with the Red Cross allowed me to visit projects on a local and international scale. Meeting with beneficiaries and staff members in order to have a more hands-on understanding of their needs.
I was able to witness the execution of these programs and realize the essential role women have in successfully implementing programs and helping to reduce the sufferings in their own families and communities.
Active in philanthropy for over ten years, I decided to found the Tiffany Circle Swiss chapter for women who share the same values and commitment to join forces under the principles of the Red Cross with an aim of empowering women worldwide and help them become more self reliant in order to have better lives.”
Driven by values of kindness, generosity, compassion and dedication, I am convinced that the commitment and empathy of all have become today a human, ethical, social and global necessity! It is truly the commitment to the “Cause of the World” that gives all its nobility to our condition of Human Being!
Grateful to Life which has given me so much – a feeling that has only grown over the years and the trials that have marked them – it has always seemed obvious to me that if I had received, it was to give further!
Great lover of the high mountains – a true school of Life that leads to surpassing one’s own limits and teaches humility -, euphoric when I can “get close to the summits”, what I like just as much is the path to get there, the state of mind that guides each step and sets the pace! What carries me is the feeling of being connected to something bigger than oneself and to feel one’s place in this great whole, what is the true value of each thing…
First of the rope, last of the rope … the important thing is to be on the Way! This is what I hope to be followed, today and tomorrow…
Today, thanks to a series of wonderful encounters, I have accepted the role of Founding Member of Tiffany Circle Switzerland. My commitment as a woman for other underprivileged women in Switzerland and abroad is particularly meaningful to me and I wish to bring my experience and my network to contribute to making their Lives better.
