About Me


Well... I'm very easily fascinated by things nowadays, I can feel it growing and growing from day to day. So: to keep on learning, keep on exploring the world, my city and myself, keep on meeting inspiring people. One word for it: revolution.


I'm 24, vegan, socialist, feminist. Basically, what these three words means for me is that I believe another world, a world where we live as equals without "shitting where we're eating", is both possible and necessary, and that it's important to fight for it.

I'm born in Stockholm but been living in Uppsala the last 5 years.
Calm and impatient,
slow in some elements of life, but a quick thinker&talker.

At the moment trying to figure out what to prioritize in life, where I'm heading, both academically and just generally.


Being my own best friend, being curious about myself, but at the same time never denying the fact that we're all connected; through experiences, living conditions, through sharing the same space.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

For me, couchsurfing has a huge potential of connecting people from all over the world, but I don't share the view of some people that "Couchsurfing is always more about just sleeping at someone's place". Well generally, I get it, it shouldn't only be like that, but for me just offering a bed without necessarily feeling like or having the time to socialize/exchange/show the city is one act of true solidarity.

So basically yes, I love couchsurfing for the fact that I meet inspiring people through it, but if you're "just" offering me a bed, to me, it's so much more than just a bed. In other words: I'd rather see a CS where MANY people are involved as hosts, but half of them only able to offer a bed and nothing more, than a CS with much fewer hosts who all have a lot of time and energy to give.


Subcultures/contra culture such as hiphop (music & street art), veganism, autonomous political activity, dumpster diving, permaculture, urban exploration.
Playing. Doing things I never thought Id do. Creating mixtapes and zines.

Conversations that really gets me going usually circle around:
politics (constructions and deconstructions), alternative things in general, relations(hips)&sex&human interaction, well-being (physical exercise, meditation, mindfulness), art (music, literature, film, street art).

Music, Movies, and Books

Hiphop, funk, soul, jazz... and then some house and techno. Gets me going.

One book that I always get back to is "Hemlighetstillstandet" (The State of Secrecy), a collection of essays from the Danish poet Inger Christensen. It's so philosophical, humble, curious, political, open-minded. It's really medicine, sometimes.

And movies/series:
La Haine, Do the right thing, Black Power Mixtape, Synechdoche NY, Man tanker sitt, The Wire, Black Mirror.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- Walking el Camino de Santiago was amazing.
- Just recently hitchhiked to Spain= also amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn Spanish! I am trying at the moment, but appreciate some help (especially with the verbs...).
I also want to learn how to play the harmonica.
I'm trying to be mindful in what I'm doing in life, and since that's something really practical (not only something you reflect upon, but something you do) I'm really interested in learning more about it.
Also: I'm always interested in the politics in the country you're from, so if you know anything: do tell!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Interesting conversations and a laugh, I hope!
Music, movies, litterature, all of that.
Also, if you're interested, we can cook some vegan food :)
