The People Speak People! – Katie F

Welcome to our micro-blog series where we will introduce some of the recent members of The People Speak team.

“Growing and socialising”

I was born in Lithuania in 1989. Moved to India at the age of 13, where I spent 4 years studying music. I returned to Lithuania in 2007, finished school and got a job in a printing and graphic design company. I joined Vilnius Pedagogical University to study physics and applied computer science as both have fascinated me since my childhood. I quit it after the first year to be able to take up a full-time job in a DELL distribution center as a sales manager. I started my own IT company soon after and a few years later dropped it for a job in the Computer Science Corporation branch in Vilnius, Lithuania. At the age of 25 I quit everything and came to the UK to begin a new life. Here, I found a job in a cafe/club in central London where I am currently employed.

My interests started with physics and computers at about age of 5, and now they have grown into physics, philosophy and psychology. My current biggest passion is looking for patterns in the universe, our world and our mind, whether they would be physical, historical, or psychological. I became a science fiction fan from the age of 7 after reading “The Destruction of Faena” by Alexander Kazantsev and have been a big fan of the genre since. My favourite author is Isaac Asimov and my views on science fiction value and role in society closely matches his. I am also an activist for the global disclosure of UFO/UAP information.

I love talking with people and comparing different views, so I was very happy to find out about Talkaoke shows during the lockdown. I have participated in a few of them, first being the “TAKE BACK CONTROL TALKAOKE” in September, and have really enjoyed listening and sharing ideas with people who have different views and experiences in life. I believe such talk shows are a great way to grow and socialise and meet people whom we wouldn’t have if we just stayed with our regular circle of friends. I have learned that sitting in the middle and guiding the conversation is way harder than it appears and I really appreciate the work that the hosts put in it. I am always looking forward to the next event!
