One of our core values is People Who Inspire. We believe in the Lingo-ists’ ability to make a difference, both within the company and in our relationships with clients, translators and partners.
We have over 150 employees working from hubs spread all over the world, so challenges such as time zones, language and cultural differences are something we deal with daily. However, we consider diversity to be one of our main strengths, and something that helps us greatly in understanding and assisting our customers.
To celebrate Lingo24’s diversity, we started a series of interviews, where we give our colleagues from all around globe the chance to talk about their hobbies and what they do outside Lingo24.
Our Service Delivery colleague, Camelia Minisan, spends her downtime making adorable crochet items that would make perfect gifts. And since Christmas is fast approaching, we asked her a few questions about her art.
For the past 10 years I’ve been experimenting all kinds of arts and crafts and it seams crochet is my all time favourite. It’s amazing the infinite possibilities a simple thread of yarn can have.
What do you usually make?
I love to crochet dolls (also known as amigurumi). Kids love them and I feal like I’m running a happiness factory and these dolls spread joy to the world.
How do you find the time? Any time management tricks?
I am a morning person. I wake up every day at 7 a.m. and I have two hours of me-time that I usually spend crocheting while having my coffee.
What has been your biggest crochet challenge so far?
My biggest crochet challenge is to stop buying yarn. It’s the only shopping spree I can’t resist. This year I went on holiday in Mexico and came back with my luggage full of yarn. It’s addictive, I have a lot of ideas and „to-dos” and I woke up one day with a huge box of yarn… and still missign the type I need.
What has been your greatest achievement so far?
The greatest achievements so far are my workshops and the comunity built arround them. It’s wonderful to see how people connect, relax and discover the great things they can craft with their own hands.
