She is… a creative entrepreneur and company owner, if you ask Alisa Volskaya to define herself, and she immediately adds that she is “someone who knows good jewellery”.
The biggest or most important fight you had in your life?
I don’t really fight. I kill with kindness.
Are we all a mix of shadows and lights?
I am a long-time healthy living advocate, but also a serious Red Bull addict at any time of the day. Also, I can get really selfish on the way to my goals (including a Red Bull in the middle of the night to write down new communicational ideas). But I try to pursue positive and constructive goals.
The moment you reveal your strength most vividly?
I think quickly and it helps me to learn. Constant and quick learning is fundamental to my strengths. It’s helped me especially when I had moved cities, countries and continents.
Everyone has a conviction, a statement guiding our path, what is yours?
Always do the right thing. It came from a client who is also a great friend and one of the world’s most outstanding businessmen. If ever a situation becomes confusing or difficult, I try to hear my inner intuition and follow what would be the right and positive thing to do.
Mind Upload is the beginning of our heroine’s story. If you could augment yourself, what personal abilities would you expand?

Encountering a magic wand, how do you redesign your future and ours? Would you even use it?
My mind is my daily magic wand, as long as I keep it focused and clear. Each of us can use theirs to construct the best version of our future.
Never give up: What would you say to your best friend or child?
I would tell them to never renounce their values. Nothing makes people more interesting or attractive than having strong values and convictions. To me, they’re loyalty, faithfulness and never forget people who help you in a way, Always give back!
Becoming French after 8 years of living in Paris. I love this country and the people here so much. Being here has shaped who I am today on many levels. It’s truly been a “French Dream”. It is an honor for me and a responsibility to bring value through what I am doing.
