Question and Answer Session in the Mitre Lounge:


Question for Adam: Where have you been since you left school?

So I did a gap year, did Europe and Asia, and then went to Adelaide in Australia for marine biology. I didn't finish that degree, but then ended up changing subject and changing to business and marketing and went to London.

Question for Adam: Where in London are you employed or studying?

Currently working at a company called Web Lifter. We're a tech startup, and I'm a Product Manager there.

Question for Adam: Are you happy there?

Yes. It's amazing.

Question:  What is your relationship (Adam and Daniela) to each other?  Why are you here? Did you come with him?

Yes. He dragged me here from London.

Question for Daniela:  What are you doing in London?

Well, I lived in London for 13 years.  I am an Account Director at an advertising agency.

Question for Daniela: Where are you originally from?

Moldova. Everyone knows it because it's next to Ukraine and everyone knows Ukraine nowadays.

Question for Daniela: Do you have family or anyone in the Ukraine that you are concerned about?

No, not at the moment. Fortunately I don't have anyone close in the Ukraine.
