About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to show myself the world

ABOUT ME

I'm a funloving, very laidback, proud native Dane living in Copenhagen. I am a recent Occupational Therapy graduate and now work as a project manager on health promotion for young people with acquired brain damage. I've also studied 3 years at university (English major and Music Culture minor)

I'm very aware of other cultures, from being in a bi-national relationship for 4 years with a Canadian. Gained a lot of experience in reliving my own culture from another culture's point of view. Gained a lot of friends from all over the world via my ex, and time spent online chatting. I've traveled in Europe mainly, but also been to Canada 4 times and the US 3 times, and spent 3 months in South Africa in 2014. I'm a diehard activist within the field of LGBTQIA health - I am spokesperson of the main organization in Denmark.

PHILOSOPHY

If you're scared to do something, it probably means you should do it.
