Viola Steinbeck: Specificly? No idea ... I can laugh very well about daily occurences. Also about myself. When I think about it again: recently about my mother.
What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?
Viola Steinbeck: Traveling cross-country through the USA for one or two years. But it is difficult to organize a companion – and also being away for such a long time. I’m working on the realization, if only mentally at the moment.
Which person has influenced you most?
Viola Steinbeck: My grandparents, I think there is nothing more important than grandma and grandpa. I have spent a lot of time with them because my mother was studying, earning money and being a single mother, like many other women at this time. My mother has brought me to be a autonomous woman, despite and especially because of my disability. She did it because she always had to fight on many fronts at the same time. My stepfather has taught me to always illuminate a story from both sides, not to judge rashly and not to generalize. I also have my hunger for knowledge from him.
