#ProudConnector Unveiled: Lennart Coryn | Office Assistant
Head over to Instagram, to get an exclusive peek behind the scenes of #Lennart's week #instagramtakeover #ProudConnector
What is your role within YouConnect?
What motivates you from day to day?
I function at my best when the people around me are in a good mood. So I always do my best to make sure everybody’s happy.
What gives you energy?
I get a boost whenever people say they appreciate my work. It doesn't have to be particularly explicit—just being appreciated is good enough for me.
What is your favorite season and why?
I really like the summer because you can meet up with friends on a nice terrace somewhere or enjoy a pleasant spot in the city. Winter also has its charms; it can be very cozy inside with friends or family when it's cold outside.
Are you an early bird or a night owl?
Definitely a night owl: I can really enjoy staying up late and sleeping in a little longer.
What was your last online purchase?
I just ordered some new shoes. I've had my old pair for a while now, and it’s about time I changed them. The problem was I couldn't choose, so I ordered several pairs, which was a big purchase all of a sudden.
What is your favorite Eurovision song?
My all-time favorite Eurovision song is “Euphoria” by Loreen (2012). I think it's a beautiful song with a great beat and great lyrics. Even after all these years, it's still as good as ever.
What would you like to do one day that you have never done before?
I am someone who listens to music every day. I really couldn't do without music, but I regret to say that I can't play any musical instruments. That is definitely something I would like to do in the future. Piano would be nice.
Do you believe in coincidence?
Especially in small things, but I’ve often had situations where I’ve thought “it’s quite a coincidence that this is happening now.”
What is your strongest sense?
My sense of smell.
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
I don't eat ice cream very often, so there is not really a particular flavor that stands out for me. If I had to choose, it would be chocolate!
What are you ashamed of?
I have a mole in the middle of my nose, and it has grown with me as I have grown older. I’m not ashamed of it, but sometimes it does bother me.
What do you find especially annoying?
When people make a mountain out of a molehill, that's when I get annoyed. All the unnecessary drama makes people nervous and gets you nowhere.
If you could go back in time, what time would you go to?
I would like to go back to the period of Ancient Egypt.
What is the meaning of your name?
My name is of Scandinavian origin and literally means “brave lion.” In Ikea, there is even a desk cupboard named after me.
Do you prefer to cook for yourself or eat out?
Even though I'm not a great cook, I can enjoy cooking with someone else. But I'm not opposed to ordering food or going out for dinner every now and then.
What is your all-time favorite music?
Lady Gaga's new album, Chromatica. It was released last May. It's full of upbeat, danceable songs that I can listen to again and again. The lyrics seem simple, but there's more to them than meets the eye.
What was your last holiday destination?
Normandy in France during Christmas 2019.
What 3 words best describe you?
Friendly, helpful, quiet.
Are you a country or a city person?
A city person, but one who really enjoys a bike ride or walk in the countryside.
What is your favorite city and why?
I don't really have a favorite city, but London never ceases to amaze me. I've been there a few times now, and every time you discover something new. The city has a beautiful combination of nature, culture, gastronomy, you name it… So yes, London’s got to be number 1.
