When did you last laugh heartily and what about?

Christian Troger:
Last night with my friends.

What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?

Christian Troger:  I just do everything I really want to do. Everything else is just not that important to me. Because if I really want to do something, I stick to it and follow through with it.

Which person has influenced you most?

Christian Troger:  Every encounter influences me to a certain degree.

You have the chance to become the German Federal Commissioner for the Disabled. What would you do first?

Christian Troger: I do not know the legal situation in Germany, but in Austria I would try to improve the inclusion of disabled people in daily and professional life. The current legal situation for disabled people is more of a disadvantage than an advantage.
