What would you do if you were a magician?

Develop clean water and sanitation systems for Africans and the extremely poor, especially those living in rural areas.

What is it that you would never dream of being?

Lonely. It’s not about being alone, but about being lonely or isolated from people. I love people and consider myself a ‘people person’. In such circumstances, I would crave to meet and connect with other people.

How would you describe your relationship with money?

Never really thought about this relationship! I would not go far in saying that “money does not matter”. Nonetheless, I don’t agree with those economists who argue that “money brings happiness”. In Tanzania, I met extremely poor people who are far happier than my good self.

Do you collect anything?

Yes! Press accreditation badges and hotel room key cards.

What’s the fashion item you couldn’t live without?
