Global Education Manager, Wikimedia Foundation
A person is but the product of her thoughts. What she thinks, she becomes.

About me

I love reading. Forcing myself to read thick, old and difficult books, partly as to be able to store them in my shelf as to perhaps in the somewhat future impress on someone, and partly due to being afraid of having my synapses taking the same route too often. I enjoy focused dialogues and try and become better at them. I try to be present not only physically but mentally, and I enjoy those small glimpses when you think and feel that you are actually connecting with and perhaps even understanding another human being and their perspective on life. What does that say about me? Well, that is up to you to decide.

My work

I studied Human Resources and International Leadership. After that I spent nine months as the Education Manager in Sweden at Wikimedia Sweden. Gratefully and with most humbleness, I am now seeing and working with a much greater picture of communicating with, aiming to support, listen to and learn from various education programmes and efforts around the world.
