How long have you been a Pioneer, and what do you like about it / what is particularly exciting?
I have been an unu Pioneer since 2019. I find it exciting to meet new people and promote a product I stand behind. In addition, I enjoy the job as a change from my studies and job.
Can you give us an insight into your day as an unu Pioneer? / What does a typical day with the unu Scooter look like for you, and how do you use the unu Scooter for yourself?
I use the unu scooter mainly for short trips in the city, to the university, and to see friends. From spring to fall, I hardly ever drive a car. On days with test drives, I make sure the batteries are full, clean the scooter with a wet cloth if necessary, and then meet with interested parties.
