Bio

Born in Sweden to a bi-lingual family, I grew up speaking Swedish and English natively. Although I spent most of my childhood in Sweden, I also spent a few of my early years in The U.S. Moving around at an early age must have sparked my interest in travel and culture as I have since lived and studied at universities in not only Sweden but also Australia and Canada.

My academic background is mainly focused around Political Science, Social Science, Law, Journalism, and Psychology.

I enjoy working with texts and words, and thus I find translation a very satisfying job in which I can explore languages, and also as a bonus, I get to learn about new topics on the frequent. Translating fits me as it opens so many doors to new knowledge and skills, and I feel like I am constantly evolving, learning, and getting better- at my job and life itself.
