About me – Keep Smiling
I have updated my about page and wanted to share some of it. So if case you are new to my blog or is a little bit curious of who I am, here is my story.
My blog is founded in Jan 2014 and is my digital universe where my aim is to inspire and motivate through my travels.
I believe honesty, hard work and a positive mind is “This Way“ in life.
I started my blog as a hobby besides everything else that I was doing at that time but now, 3 years later, I work full-time on my blog and as a model. I truly enjoy creating posts, making collaborations, and the possibilities of being creative is my drive.
And I am grateful for the way my blog are getting support and positive feedback – so thank you vert much for this!
I am a fashion-passionated person and started collecting Vogue magazines as 12-year old and since then I always knew I wanted to be a part of the fashion world but things in life happens and you cannot stop them – embrace it and give it a positive meaning.
My traveling journey started when I finished high school in my hometown Copenhagen I moved to Paris to pursue my dream. My dream of becoming a professional dancer and be fluent in French. The dancing did not turn out as suppose to due to getting an injury in my leg. After my accident I started modeling with the intentions of just doing it for a couple of months. Now seven years later I am still modeling. I have learned that things in life are unpredictable and there is a deeper meaning when things happen – we have to fight for our passion and accept the outcome.
After living in Paris for almost one year I moved to Athens, then Milan, South Korea, Tel Aviv, and other cities. Traveling became part of my lifestyle and I am addicted to it. Then I decided to stimulate my brain differently, so I enrolled to a university, more precisely Copenhagen Business School. While studying I worked as fashion assistant at the Danish fashion magazine, Eurowoman. I also went to Barcelona for a summer fashion internship. Further I have studied several fashion courses at London College of Fashion.
After my undergraduate I got hired at the world leading fashion pr agency, KCD WorldWide in London. Here I was responsible for PR, production and coordination of fashion brands and fashion shows. I worked for London Fashion Week in June 2014, September 2014 and for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in December 2014.
In summer 2016 I graduated from Copenhagen Business School with a master degree in communication. And I want to be honest here, I am not an typical business student. I have always been this kind of person who like to do things differently and more importantly, do them in my own way (This Way). Studying to me means a lot of reading, digging into theories and understanding theoretical perspective and developing a critical stand point, which is tuff for a person like me. When everything is put into boxes and categories and “this is how we do it her!”, then I get turned of and wants to challenge the system, which result to me doing everything differently.
While studying I was traveling all the time. I was working one week in London and the next in Germany. I was a “ghost” student. I was enrolled in the course but I was barely attending any classes. However, I flew back for all my exams if I could not do them from abroad. And one time I was sitting in London one evening after a long day at work and I was reading a new course on my master degree and I could not understand anything. I tried my best to follow the class but after 3 weeks of not understanding anything, I flew back to Coenhagen and attended all the classes to keep up with the course. In the end everything went well but I remember all my girlfriends saying to me that I was crazy and it was insane that I could manage studying the way I did. The advice I can give is; disciplined, discipline and time management. I wanted to do everything; I wanted to travel, live life, work, AND get a master degree. Well, then I need to sit home and study many Friday and Saturdays when all my friends are out getting drunk. You need to prioritise and I like to study during the night, which is perfect when I am working during the day and then I had many “all-nighters” with a geeky book. I always made myself a schedule of how much to read in order to not be behind and to write notes (even though it slows down the pace when reading, notes are gold). Therefore I taught myself to be more disciplined and being able to stay focused on my study while being abroad.
Furthermore, I work as a model (or maybe “performer” is a better word”) where Scoop Models is my mother agency and I am signed with modeling agencies all over the world.
I have many projects I am working on at the same time. I get restless and bored if I have to wait for one thing at the time, which is why blogging is a perfect way for me to always stay busy, and I really enjoy blogging. Every post I make have thoughts and intentions behind it. Nothing is random.
