She Wants To Represent Black Women
Schiff wants to be an inspiration and representation for black women in racing. She talked about this with Refinery29. "I was basically like an alien because I was both female and Black. I was always the only one in the room. I don't even know if there were any other Black female racing drivers at all when I raced. It makes me proud to be able to bring a different type of representation to broadcasting in motorsport that hasn't existed prior to me, in terms of being a young woman and a woman of colour."
She Goes After What She Wants
In an interview on Red Bull's website, Schiff shared her advice for others who want to break into an industry. "If you walk into a room and there's no one who looks like you, whether that's in motorsports or sport or business, it has no bearing on your own capabilities. It might be harder, and people might not understand your struggle, but that doesn't mean you can't do it. Don't stand in your own way—other people will do that. Go for anything you want to do."
Schiff does a lot of outdoor activities to stay in shape, and shares a bunch of highlights on her Instagram. One thing she likes to do is go hiking. Schiff shared this set of photos of herself hiking on a mountain in the Western Cape. She captioned the post, "Not too shabby." Schiff also shared this photo of herself sitting on top of a mountain overlooking the beach, captioning it, "Where's this pic taken?"
Another outdoor activity Schiff likes to do to stay in shape is going biking. She shared this photo on Instagram of herself going on a bike ride in Amsterdam. Better Health states that biking has a lot of benefits. "Cycling can help to protect you from serious diseases such as stroke, heart attack, some cancers, depression, diabetes, obesity and arthritis. Riding a bike is healthy, fun and a low-impact form of exercise for all ages. Cycling is easy to fit into your daily routine by riding to the shops, park, school or work."
She Thrives Outside
The advantages of sunshine are diverse and impactful. Sunlight's most prominent benefit is its role in synthesizing vitamin D in the skin, crucial for bolstering immune responses and maintaining strong bones. Exposure to the sun also triggers the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that uplifts mood and reduces stress. By regulating circadian rhythms, natural light contributes to improved sleep quality and a more balanced internal body clock. Moreover, well-lit spaces have been linked to heightened cognitive function and increased productivity, ideal for effective learning and work environments. Lastly, the sun's natural antibacterial effects support skin health and can aid in the healing of various skin ailments.
