I am a very social and considerate individual with a huge interest in Global Justice and Human Rights.

32 year old, born in Denmark, raised in Sweden and lived longer periods in France and Australia. I am very friendly and someone easy to get along with especially in group. Whilst I enjoy working as part of a group I am also great at working independently. I am a considerate, loyal and helpful friend and colleague. My mission in life is to give more than I take. Work is an important part of me, and I always give my entire effort and find great satisfaction in finishing tasks.

Human rights have become an essential part of my life both in my daily choices and in my personal vision. My passion is evidenced by my many years volunteering in the area of Human rights. Furthermore I have devoted my entire education and ultimately Master’s Thesis to the subject.

My interest in Human Rights began many years back. Over 15 years ago in fact when I was 17, I applied for and was accepted (of 2 in total) to volunteer in Sudan. This work consolidated my passion for the area. The work involved managing a program designed to assist women and build schools in outskirts of Khartoum (an area especially difficult for women). My passion has grown from there, contributing more to volunteering and most recently working at 2 NGOs in the Philippines. This work was part of my Thesis examining the role of “re-introducing” play to the lives of abused children, thereby giving children back their childhood. During my studies I have worked part-time as an air hostess for Scandinavian airlines system in Copenhagen. Whilst I have enjoyed working with hospitality I am committed to pursue my passion for Human rights work.
