“When I grew up in a small town in Denmark, I had big dreams but I didn’t really think they could come true. In Scandinavia we have the Law of Jante which states you are not to think you’re anyone special or that you’re better than us. I was curious and keen to learn and develop and better myself. Although my inner fire has been dimmed from time to time it has never been extinguished. And as I have stepped into the big world and have allowed more air to it, it has enkindled and now burns clearly and brightly. And I will never allow anyone to smother it again. Including myself.
When I learned to be my own best friend and take full responsibility for my life that was when everything shifted for me and I want to do the same for you. Your life force is sustained by passion, curiosity and courage and by surrounding yourself with great, positive people who inspire you, help you find your way, push you and keep you accountable when it gets tough, you can absolutely live your life on your own terms.”
