When did you last laugh heartily and what about?

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

Which person has influenced you most? And why?
Lisa Schütte: I would say my parents and my brother. I admire all three oft hem, because they experienced a lot. They lived through hard times, times I may not have lived through without beeing broken, and they still are happy people. Besides that, they have accomplished a lot in their life. I would love to look back at my life one day and feel as satisfied and blessed as they do today.
You have the chance to become the Commissioner for the Disabled in your country. What would you do first?

Your life is made into a film: Who would represent you?
Lisa Schütte: I would feel honored if Emma Watson would play my part. She accomplished a lot and steps up for women‘s rights.

Lisa Schütte: A lot. But the most important to me is being a beloved person, looking back on my life and being pleased. And maybe I would like to be batman.
Which questions would you like answered the most?
Lisa Schütte: It may sounds like a cliché, but I would like to get an answer to the question "why". Why is there a disease like diabetes type 1? Why do some of our beloved ones leave way too early in our life? But for questions like that, life has probably no satisfying answer.
What I finally want to say?
Lisa Schütte: Everyone has his cross to bear. But as we do not know how heavy it weighs, we should not judge other people. And: do not grow old completely!
