This is Kate
My name is Kateryna and I am from the Ukraine, but I have been living in Berlin for three years now. I came here for my studies and am still here working. I keep exploring a mix of very different and controversial cultures.
What motivates you the most?
The impact I can have when participating in something. I dream of how my actions can change somebody’s moments in life. When I imagine the person that uses the product I am working on I want to do that the best way possible. My motivation is to be the reason for someone’s happiness.
What is your super power?
I can understand any person in this world and justify reasons for her/his actions. It helps me not to judge people and forgive.
What is the best advice you ever received?
Be mindful about moments.
At some point I started noticing that time goes by but I can’t even remember what I was doing the whole week. Being mindful is about realizing where you are and what you feel.
Three words that describes you the best?
Balanced, caring and grateful
What is your home office tip?
Personally for me it is the best thing that has ever happened to me! The main tip is to start to appreciate the opportunity to work from your couch/bed/balcony with your favourite music on. You are free to create any atmosphere! Keep experimenting.
I can spend hours…
Walking and listening to music or talking to someone. Recently this has been my favorite activity. But also, as many of us, I can dive into the social media world and spend some hours there. I used to scold myself for spending my time on it but then I realised it is a new reality that I can’t fight with. I started to be more mindful about it, trying to optimise the content I see so it gives some valuable information or inspires me to do something. Also it is a way to keep in touch with my friends in the Ukraine.
What does jewellery mean to you?
For me jewellery is a way to complete the look. Add some sparkle. I wear jewellery all the time. Feel naked without it.
Which is your favourite Sternefeld jewellery piece?
Untold signet ring. It’s such a strong and a slightly male design. It just evokes some emotions in me that make me love this piece. Also I feel like this ring can make any look more confident.
