Ms MI Popa

When did you join the RGS? Michaelmas 2021

What’s the best thing about the RGS? The people!

What excites you most about coming into work each day? Working with my team and meeting colleagues.

If you could change your name to anything, what would it be? I have become rather fond of my name after all these years, although I would still change my surname…for the right person. Or at least double-barrel it.

What luxury would you have on a desert island? Can I include two luxuries? All the music and all the books in the world. Minus the ones with those pastel covers and commercial dance music.

What animal most reflects your personality? I don’t know enough about the animal kingdom to answer this although I am rather fond of a cat’s lifestyle: all that napping, exploring and independence.

What’s your favourite film and why? Hands down The Big Lebowski. It is a microcosm of life in all its beautiful tragi-comic absurdity and it has some of the best lines ever written.

What food will you absolutely not, under any circumstances, eat? I am not a fussy eater, at all. Unfortunately for me…

What’s your life philosophy/motto in life? I don’t think you can really top “Live and let die”.
