Kerti Kulper - I love writing and I love Helpific’s mission!

Team member Kerti Kulper - Helpific Estonia, copywriter-editor

Kerti describes herself with five sentences or tells us what ever comes to her mind right this moment:
Right now I’m feeling happy and I can honestly say that it’s been a while since I last felt like it. Negative thoughts went on a holiday as soon as the sun started warming my cheeks and this really makes me feel good. I feel like whatever worries life throws at you, everything will work out eventually and then you realise that even crappy things happen for a reason. Loving life at this moment :)
"Sometimes it’s good to reach out to others because then you realise that others have the same kind of worries and problems and we’re not that different after all."
Our 5 questions to Kerti.

What drives you to do what you do in Helpific? What motivates you? 
I love writing and I love Helpific’s mission. I can relate to some of the problems that people with special needs have and I felt like I want to contribute somehow. Also, I’ve found some awesome people who think quite similarly to me and this is very motivating (thinking of you, Keiu!).

How would you describe yourself as a team member? How do you think others would describe you? 
Honestly, I don’t consider myself to be a team player at all. I’m more of an introvert and prefer to do things on my own. However, sometimes it’s good to reach out to others because then you realise that others have the same kind of worries and problems and we’re not that different after all. I think others would probably describe me as quiet and shy. 

What factors are crucial within an organization and must be present for you to work most effectively? 
During my working life I’ve realised that I appreciate flexibility: flexible work hours and possibility to work from home or other locations than the office. Trust and encouragement are also very important. 

Which would you pick: being world-class attractive, a genius or famous for doing something great?
I’m not after fame, so I’d leave that one out. But I wouldn’t mind being a gorgeous genius ;)

If you could time travel, where would you go? 
I actually thought one day that if I could meet any person, dead or alive, who would I like to meet. I think I’d like to meet Adolf Hitler and get to know him as a person. I’m into psychology and I’d love to analyze his personality and find out what drove him to do what he did. But if I’d have to pick a time, then I’d probably go into future and see how much things have changed.

The web-platform Helpific is an environment that mobilises communal resources resulting from the model of sharing economy and the opportunities of information- and communication technology (ICT). The concept of the idea comes from the experience of Holland where they are moving with a complete welfare reform from the traditional model of providing social services towards involving active citizens in providing help. Helpific mission is to promote the independent managing of those people who need support in the community. The web-based support environment connects the voluntary and paid services to daily needs such as transport, attending events and domestic chores. Helpific began at an idea development contest „Garage48 Enable”. 

We are calling on everyone to contribute to the development of the Helpific support environment – you can give an extra push to our project “To live by yourself and to be responsible by yourself!”at Hooandja (Kickstarter) web-environment or by joining the Helpific platform at helpific.com
