Short portrait Nicole Kreienbühl
With Nicole Kreienbühl, the founder of the foundation Sabina Kocherhans was able to gain a prudent and life-experienced co-founder.
Nicole has been very happily married to her husband for 23 years and has two grown-up children. Tamara is 21 years old and Florian is aged 18.
Professionally, Nicole works as an accountant in a property management company in Switzerland. In her spare time, she volunteers on behalf of her congregation to offer counselling to people who are in emotional distress. It is precisely this activity that gives her great satisfaction and gives her deep insight into people’s needs.
Nicole is very proud that her best friend Sabina Kocherhans brought her into her foundation as a founding member. She is honoured to do so.
Certainly Nicole, with her vision and experience in dealing with people, is a great support for the Foundation and all its concerns.
„Amazingly different“ – with these two little words, the foundation’s founder Sabina Kocherhans gives all the people of this world
- who are different,
- who do not fit into a scheme,
- who step out of line,
Sabina knows from her own experience what it means to be „different“. As an adopted child from Sri Lanka, she grew up in Switzerland with dark skin. In the process, she has had profound experiences that have allowed her to become a successful and self-confident woman against all odds.
She has retained her affinity for „otherness“ and cultivates it with her own business. With her keynotes, but also as an author, she accompanies entrepreneurs to do things differently and, above all, better. With her new task as founder of the foundation, she supports all people who are different.
Her message in all her undertakings: Be different, BE YOU!
For some time now, Sabina Kocherhans has been in a relationship with a partner who leads a transgender life. She herself has been dealing with this topic for more than 16 years and knows all the problems associated with a transgender life very well.
Many years ago, her own experience of being different made her want to set up a foundation to give a voice to all people who are different and especially to people who are affected by the issue of transgender people, to stand up for them, to make them visible. Now, finally, the time has come. The foundation concept, which has been lying in the drawer for many years, can finally be put into practice.
