Curiosity has always driven me and I have always had many interests - everything is interesting. As a journalist, I quickly find interesting angles on everyday events. To meet people to find great stories in the small is something I appreciate. There are many important stories just waiting to be told, just to find them. Being interested is also a prerequisite for asking the right questions and finding more information. My general interest has given me a good general education.
I am a photographer and have worked with this aside from studies. Here I have mainly photographed weddings, events and portraits. Concerts are my greatest passion. I have been self-taught for more than 10 years and have lately enhanced my practical skills with the theory of documentary photography, ex. from the art school of Valand, Gothenburg. As a journalist, I have no problem working as a reporter and photographer.
Exposed people are warmly at my heart. Everyone was welcome to my childhood home. Families from Iran and Eritrea were in various ways part of our family throughout my growing up. We have occasionally had refugees living at home with us and have supported single parents. It's no problem, but there are many challenges, but that's something I think is important and exciting. In the same lane, I have worked as a contact person for a developmental disabled man for more than six years, has worked with dementia and on housing for single-born refugees. Issues that concern vulnerable people grab me and to highlight their situation in ways that give the public's commitment to be very exciting.
Faith and philosophy of life is a great interest to me, and I aimed at researching theology earlier. In spring 2016, this interest will be expressed in my D essay dealing with how news editors choose to relate to Islam in its news reporting. I am well aware of issues concerning religious dialogue and have a good understanding of different approaches.
