Unveiling the hidden Quirks of Yo Cruyswegs

Welcome, dear readers, to an exclusive interview with the “Butterfly of B4Plastics”; Yo Cruyswegs! Today, we’re on a mission to unravel the mysteries, the quirks, and the exceptional talents of our beloved colleague

Background of Yo

Yo  works as the General Office Assistant of B4Plastics and our CEO Stefaan De Wildeman in particular.

Q. So, Yo, tell us, what’s your secret to being the office’s ray of sunshine?

I’ve learned that behind the smiles of 90% of the people, there may lie another complex world, one that is not always straightforward. Despite facing difficulties, I try to brighten their day with my positive attitude.

Q. We’ve heard whispers of your epic “animal farm collection” at home. How did that get started and thank you for the eggs by the way 😉

I have so many pets because I feel a deep care for animals. 🐈🐐🐓🐥🦆🦚Those without a place to go frequently find a home with me. While it can be a bit chaotic at times, it’s undeniably enjoyable, particularly for my grandchildren. They might walk in with a chicken in their hands or be found teaching a baby duck to swim in our kitchen sink. These little moments of joy are what I cherish a lot!

Q. Impressive! If you were an animal, which one would you be then?

If I were an animal, I’d choose to be a cat 🐈‍⬛, enjoying the freedom to do my own thing. Cats are known for their independent and self-sufficient nature, which I find appealing.

Q. Enough for the animals. Are there any hidden talents or skills that your coworkers might not know about?

I like to paint 👩‍🎨 because it allows me to express my emotions and creativity in a unique way. When I pick up a paintbrush, I feel a sense of freedom, as the blank canvas becomes a space where I can bring my thoughts and ideas to life.

Q. And lastly, if you were to give your colleagues one piece of advice, what would it be?

Don’t be too serious about life; take moments to laugh and enjoy it. You can’t please everyone, so if you can’t put the church in the middle, turn it into a town square, and the issue is resolved.

Well that sounds logical 😉 Conclusion:

There you have it! Our colleague Yo is not just your average desk neighbour. She’s a ray of sunshine and an animal whisperer too! Remember, work isn’t just about tasks and deadlines; it’s also about the wonderful personalities that make up our office family.
