Meet the Opera bloggers: Ruth from the United Kingdom

If you follow Opera on Twitter or Facebook, you might have already heard of Ruth. She’s one of our social-media ninjas, dedicated to answering all your questions and passing your feedback to our product teams.

By now, you know that Ruth is a) not a robot b) super quick in answering and c) helpful and tech savvy. She is also a fire hazard in the kitchen (ask her about the tea-towel incident), has a phobia of praying mantises and can quote the film Anchorman like the back of her hand.

Want to know more about her? Check out this interview below and follow her on Twitter!


What is your superpower at Opera?

People power. I love interacting with our Opera communities, and I know the importance of building open, genuine and personable relationships with the people who use our apps and browsers.

Tell us something about you that people don’t know.

I have a post-graduate certification in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and I’m a huge psychology nerd. I still consider myself a bit of a metal-head and often listen to the kind of music that would frighten your parents. I’m vegan(ish)! I still love playing old Playstation games like Crash Bandicoot and I learnt to ride a bike 2 years ago… Ok, fine, I still can’t ride a bike.

When you are not at work, where can we find you?

In a quirky Oslo café writing or browsing Reddit, sipping gin in a friend’s apartment or going to Norwegian class. Well, when I’m being a good student anyway – hahaha.
