What makes you laugh?
Simone Lai: Quite a lot, since I always laugh very quickly by nature. But you always get me with economy jokes.
What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?
Simone Lai: I'd love to skydive once, but I've never had the chance.
Which person has influenced you most? And why?
Simone Lai: My whole environment influences me. But I have such a supportive environment that I am only positively influenced.
You have the chance to become the Commissioner for the Disabled. What would you do first?
Simone Lai: Adapt the Federal Participation Law. The law is good in itself, and fortunately it is always improved. But I think, if someone earns money, then he/she should be allowed to keep it. Maybe one could deduct a percentage of the salary for the support from the state. Then a person with a disability would not be totally restricted and could still save for the future.
