"Everyday you are given a new chance to become who you really are. Never doubt your instincts and your feelings and always believe that you are strong enough, you are smart enough or good enough. As long as you believe in yourself and have your heart and ambition and independence with you, nothing is impossible. Never let anyone tell you who your are and never give up on your dreams."

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS
I grew up in the citycenter of Stockholm as the only child with my mum who supported me with all of her heart. She showed me the world from all parts and made me understand in a young age the importance of respecting other people, self love and trust. I think I have always been a dreamer. A dreamer of something big. But I have always also been a creator. When I was 8-13 years old I was dreaming of becoming something big and I also dreamed about independence and to become more then what people expected of me. My mum drived me between my music school, to my gymnastic training and then a few years later to my modeling jobs. She said that she was never worried about me, and she never created big rules at home because she believed in me and trusted me. This trust and this belief has made me the loyal, caring and loving person I am today. Also she created ambition in me and a will to think very big during my hole life. Today I would say that I am not done, but I am on a good path. I will never stop dreaming and creating and I have the belief that nothing is impossible.

WHAT IS YOUR MEMORABLE MOMENT?
One of my memorable moments was when I sang at the royal wedding between princess Victoria and price Daniel in Sweden. This was a huge opportunity for me and wonderful in every way. But why this moment is so memorable for me is because that was the day I realized that whatever your title is, princess or prince, we are all humans with our need and insecurities. And we are all on the same planet with the same issues. I was talking with some royalty and I understood that there was so much behind their titles and their position in the society. They had also bad days, problems and issues as everyone. That is something I will bring with my title as Miss Earth Sweden, that whoever you are and whoever you want to be, you can always make dreams come true and nothing is impossible as long as you have your heart and ambition with you.

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
I thank my family for who I am today in many ways but I really thank them for my passion and ambition in becoming something big. In my family the women have always been the most ambitious and powerful, and that is something that for sure have created who I am today. My family have aways supported me with that whatever I want to become or whatever I want to be. It will never be impossible or too late as long as I have my heart and ambition and passion with me. For example my aunt decided at 66 years old that she, out of nowhere wanted to become an author, no-one believed that it was possible. Now one year later she has her own book published and you can buy her book in every bookstore in Sweden.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
The most unusual thing I have ever done I think is that I have accomplished so many different things because I have always believed in myself. I went from a full time singer, to signing my first modeling contract in Sweden, to becoming an accountant at one of the biggest accounting companies in the world. And last year I got the huge opportunity to represent Norway in Top model of the world, and this year’s Miss Earth Sweden. I can never explain how grateful and honored I am and I think that’s why I have accomplished this is because I have always believed in myself, learned and listened to others who know more than me and never ever gave up.

WHAT IS YOUR ADVOCACY?
Today we are making huge differences with measures against environmental issues by reducing plastic use, reducing polluting emissions and choosing companies that are more environmental friendly then others. We still have huge problems with Biodiversity. Biodiversity is the most complex and vital feature of our planet. Water pollution is a huge concern for us and our environment. To address deforestation, we need plants and trees to survive. Pollution and climate change are problems as well. I will book a meeting with the government and discuss the measures we are doing to fight environmental degradation and spread the truth about what we are doing and not doing and what we can do to make a change.

We can also see that the fashion industry, one of the biggest industries doesn’t have an environmental mindset as other industries. We see today that recycled clothes are connected to low budget clothes and the none recycled clothes connected to high budget and exclusivity. I want to change this by challenging the big companies and ask them about their environmental mindset and measures. I also challenge these companies to move the production of clothes from the low budget countries as China to Sweden. If we created huge greenhouses we could grow our own cotton and create the fabrics in a environmental friendly way in our home country.

WHAT TIPS CAN YOU SHARE TO PROMOTE ECOTOURISM & CLIMATE CHANGE?
I think the biggest thing to promote is that everything starts from you. I often hear that, ” I can make a change”, but just do what you can do. When you start to change your behavior you will always get at least 10 people to think about their behavior and actions. I don’t believe one person can change the world, but I believe that one person can do what they can and also influence others to understand and make difference.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF YOUR COUNTRY?
I have always been proud of my beautiful country since I was a very little girl. When my mum grew up in the north of Sweden I have seen the beautiful fir forests, I have seen northern lights and I have fetched energy at a Swedish alp top just next to mooses and reindeers. Because I grew up in Stockholm I have also seen the best of the city and all our canals and lakes. But what I am most proud of about my country is how open we are for different and new thinking. We have always been an advocate and promoted human rights, the right to love who you want, and the right to live your life in the way you want. We opened up to other cultures and welcomed it to our country with open armes and respect.

WHAT CAN YOU PROMOTE ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY?
My beautiful country is one of diverse people and cultures with eleven official languages. It is surrounded by the Atlantic and Indian Ocean located at the Southern tip of Africa. South Africa is rich in natural heritage and is the third most bio diverse country in the world with a variety of eco systems, landscapes and ranging climates.

WHAT TRIVIA ABOUT YOURSELF WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE?
I would like to share to others that whatever you want to become and whatever you want to do nothing is possible. I am who I am today because I have always believed in myself, learned from people who know more then me and always been working on development and creating meaning for me and others. It is never to late to become who ore what you want to be, everything starts from today.
