Kathrin loves to have different roles and to live and work in different places: Auckland, Berlin, Bukarest, Kuala Lumpur, Melbourne, Mumbai, New York, Rome, Stockholm, Taipei, Tokyo, Vienna…. Following her motto ‘Never take anything for granted’ she persistently explored various aspects of human nature, always keen on going beyond limitations.
So she ventured out to learn Mandarin as a teenager. She fell in love with Daoism and Confucianism when she started to study Chinese culture. When she lived and worked in Japan, she became familiar with lean production, practiced Zen Buddhism and experienced how difficult it can be to be a foreigner.
Kathrin is fascinated by discovering the unknown. She travelled the world on the quest to assume perspectives of cultures and people that were most different from herself. She also dived into her inside to find the ‘secrets’ of a self-determined meaningful life. And she made it: Kathrin managed to tap into her inner knowledge and integrate it into her day-to-day life – extending the world of academia J. She utilizes consciousness to live her dream of freedom.
She is passionate about sharing her experience in an easy to adopt and joyful way. This is how the United States of You came to life, with the Formies as the main protagonists.
