If you're asking Anja Bohr, every human being has the right to understand and to be understood. That's the reason she learned easy and sign language. While she would feel uncomfortable with being Commissioner for the Disabled, there's not much else she wouldn't dare. Which question the sign language assistant would like to get an answear to, she tells us at REHACARE.com.
Anja Bohr: I'm trying to laugh every day once at least because it opens your soul. Mostly I can laugh about myself.
What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?
Anja Bohr: There are a lot of things, I've already done because 'I don't dare' isn't likely to be. Last year I was skydiving for example. It was a dream of mine. But the biggest dream I've accomplished three years ago, when I learned sign language. This year I want to go back to my previous lifes. I'm curious what it will bring to surface.
Which person has influenced you most? And why?
Anja Bohr: There's no particular one. A lot of people have an impact on me every day, for example my kids. They show me how lighthearted life can be. My parents had an influence on me because of their attitude of life. And my friends - if deaf or not - everyone affects my life in some kind. For all of those people I'm very grateful.
You have the chance to become the Commissioner for the Disabled in your country. What would you do first?
Anja Bohr: That's a good question. To be honest, I don't know if I would accept the charge. It's hard to do justice to everyone. Personally I try to make the world a better place through my work. If I can make somebody smile, I've done everything right.
Your life is made into a film: Who would represent you?
Anja Bohr: I would represent myself. No one else knows which ups and downs my life has had and how different incidents influenced it differently. I guess no one could do it like me.
I would like to be ...
Anja Bohr: completely myself again. In our world we're forced to operate functional, so our real selves stay on the track.
Which questions would you like answered the most?
Anja Bohr: Sometimes I ask myself what my life will be like in a couple of years. What will I have accomplished? But on the other hand that's nothing I want to know... Everything happens for a certain reason and it will happen just like it should. Besides that it would be boring to know everything before it happens.
What I finally want to say?
Anja Bohr: Thank you for the possibility to do the interview. Through the questions I have found the time to look into myself and reflect. Something that is missing nowadays.
