One would think that a lady who has bagged so many awards, accolades, degrees and who is a Harvard fellow would be snobbish or pompous. But not Funke. She’s quite the opposite: earthy, super friendly, open minded, zealous about life, fun loving and possessing of an intellectually stimulating sense of humour. She’s a great talker and when I say great I don’t mean she talks with irrelevance or too much. I mean a profound and inspiring talker. A simple chat with her can change your life.
