I love my work. Storytelling is part of my life. Listening in to people and helping them get their stories out is a privilege. I have been working abroad, meeting interesting, passionate people and inspiring young people. I have learned so much, and I am fascinated by other cultures, other ways of life, other languages. The gateway to really getting to know someone, is learning their language (the spoken as well as the non-spoken). Aquiring new knowledge is fascinating and staying curious is imperative in order to do that.
Some things I’ve been inolved in
Freedom of the press is one of the most important pillars of any democracy. That is why I was so happy to be able to organise this talk on press freedom and its challenges during times of corona and other imminent threats.
It was recorded by UR – where I used to work – and I am so happy for that. Through UR, this important discussion can be used as a basis for teaching about freedom of the press in schools all around the country.
In combining my love for literature with my passion for listening experiences and education, I have produced some children’s books as radio programmes. “Jag håller om trädet när det blåser” by Inger Lindahl, and “Elmer Djurdoktor” by Ulf Stark, were both recorded with the actress Siri Fagerudd.
I also had the privilege of producing a wonderful children’s book by Viveka Sjögren. Working with actor Jarmo Mäkinen was a true pleasure. The book is called “Om du skulle fråga Micha” (If you were to ask Micha) – and is a story about a young child fleeing war and discovering another reality.
