Music, Movies, and Books

My most treasured book is Ética para Amador by Fernando Savater. I used to always carry that book on my travels. I also love To Kill A Mockingbird, Les Jeux Sont Faits and Phantom of the Opera. Also fond of reading about speciesism, feminism and whiteness.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It's impossible to name just one thing, so I'll name a few!

In the summer of 2013, I took a spontanious trip to Japan right after graduating high school in Denmark and moved to Texas to work shortly upon my return. Unfortunately, this did not work out (let's just say I wasn't exactly cut out for the au pair-job!). A couple of months later, I flew to South America to volunteer at a hostel in Argentina and to visit friends in other parts of the continent. The hostel became my home and I'm often told I lit up when I talk about my time in Buenos Aires. It wasn't easy to leave and my heart is yet to heal, but it did help that I, a month or so after returning from South America, could hop on a plane to Scotland; and so began the most character-defining journey of my life.

I found my magic in Buenos Aires. South America in general was a revelation, which is why I have the entire continent tattooed on my ankle. Particularily, hiking the Corcovado in Rio and seeing the Redeemer in real life is something I'll never forget. I also spent my 3rd semester of university abroad at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee - definitely also on the list of amazing things I've done.
