In order to educate people about Multiple Sclerosis and to sensitize them, Sabine Marina prefers films as the best way to do it. With the documentary "Kleine graue Wolke" (English: "Little grey cloud") she has already made her life into a movie. Who she would have also liked to see in her role and what she would like to do at Hamburg Central Station, she tells us on REHACARE.com.
Sabine Marina: A couple of hours ago with a colleague about a strange situation during a film shooting.
What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?
Sabine Marina: Dancing to loud music in the crowded Hamburg Central Station. But I guess I have to many restraints for doing this and I'm also too well brought-up.
Which person has influenced you most?
Sabine Marina: There are three: 1) My first boyfriend taught me to reflect deeply about myself. 2) Professor Randy Pausch inspired me to fight for all my dreams and to be who and what I want to be. And last but not least: 3) My husband showed me how to appreciate and enjoy life.
You have the chance to become the German Federal Commissioner for the Disabled. What would you do first?
Sabine Marina: There are so many thing. As one of the first things I would start to eliminate the financial injustices, buzzword fair Federal Participation Law (so called "Bundesteilhabegesetz"). But I also think that inclusion in kindergarten and school is very important - in order to make sure that dealing with disabilities gets normal and familiar as early as possible.
Your life is made into a film: Who would represent you?
Sabine Marina: Well, my life has already been made into a film... But if I would have had enough money, I would have seen somebody like Claire Danes representing me. She has the right degreee of reticence on the one hand and enough passion on the other hand.
I would like to be ...
Sabine Marina: in outer space.
Which questions would you like answered the most?
Sabine Marina: I prefer changes instead of answers: Why are there so many people who think they are better than others and don't see that every person is equal? Why are so many people so violent?
What I finally want to say...
Sabine Marina: Everythin in life has two sides. And it is up to yourself to choose which one gets more attention and weight.
