Her life never gets dull: Dominique Rinderknecht’s role as brand ambassador has her working for a wide variety of events and businesses. When she’s not busy doing this, she works as a presenter and DJs under the name DJ Tamynique together with her girlfriend Tamy Glauser. And this is precisely what she enjoys most: “My life is adventurous, and I love it.”

Her studies never got boring either. Looking back, she still thinks studying media science, political science and economics was an exciting mix. Her knowledge of media law and online marketing, for example, is something she can still benefit from in her everyday life. 

And she is keen for others to experience the same. The UZH alumna says that the most important aspect of deciding what to study is choosing a subject that interests you and that you’re good at. She believes that you can only be successful, or even “super-successful”, if you like what you do.
