I open eyes as a normbreaking entrepreneur, journalist, professional speaker, moderator and author

I lost my sight, but I did not loose my vision and dreams. I have never been this “sighted” as I am today!

I am passionate about diversity and inclusion, and I am also certain that diversity and breaking norms makes us grow as people, organisations and companies. I believe we need to work on different levels to include all people, and to reach an equal society with no discrimination. That is why I combine journalism with public speaking, inspiration, education and writing books.

In Sweden I am well known for being the first blind film critic and for my journalistic work about diversity and disability. I have been rewarded for including people with disabilities in society.

My education is journalism, social educator and I am also a coach with an ICF diploma.

Today I mostly work with radio and podcasting, and to inspire others through my speeches. I produce my own podcast called I mörkret med. The podcast I mörkret med is recorded in complete darkness at The restaurant Svartklubben, located in Stockholm. I invite guests to my world as a blind person. I mörkret med is produced in Swedish.
