Ines, you trained as a housekeeper. Why this particular job?

“I didn't want to go to school at first. And the most important reason: My mother is the worst housewife ever - I wanted to do better. "

And what exactly does a housekeeper do?

“Housekeepers are the ladies who stay in the background and keep everything running in companies, like cogs in a clockwork. If everything works perfectly, they never appear. If something goes wrong, it will be noticed immediately. The tasks: cooking, cleaning, washing, planting flowers, gardening, finances, organization. "

Why did you choose an apprenticeship?

“Because I wasn't sure whether I would be able to study. And because I believe that studying often only makes sense if you have worked on the ground yourself. You are taken more seriously. In addition, you already have something in your hand that nobody can take away from you. "

How did that happen?

What happened next?

My training helped me a lot here. Back in Germany I studied food, nutrition and hygiene; this is an engineering degree that is similar in many areas to home economics. I then found my way into the chemical industry through the food industry. In my daily work, my practical experience gives me a lot more prestige. Everyone takes me seriously because I have already worked in the profession myself. "

And what are you doing today?

“Today I develop cleaning agents and disinfectants. I also advise companies on cleaning and hygiene throughout Germany and other European countries. And I give courses in the kitchen, hotel and building cleaning sector for teachers and students at home economics schools. "
