You in less than 300 characters?

I am currently a full-time Master’s student at Copenhagen University majoring Techno-scientific Anthropology. I used to work in a firm and was based in Tokyo. Britain and New Zealand are my second homes too 🇳🇿 🇯🇵 🇬🇧 🇩🇰

Can you describe your role in Colere?

I work at Colere as a headhunting recruiter. Occasionally, I also have some tasks in product translation/ project management / branding voice.

What does trust mean to you?

As some classic anthropologists would say, trust must be seconded with reciprocity - it can never be one direction. Personally, I also think it’s irreversible, once it’s lost, it’s extremely difficult to recover. But I like to say that "every relationship has a problem and every problem has a solution".

What do you do for fun?

In my free time, I love to browse the Danish website DBA, where they sometimes have really nice vintage chairs at an unreal price.

What's one piece of advice you'd give your younger self?

I should have listened better on the advice "write what you feel, in whatever form you feel it, to create your own writing rhythm." Other than that, you’re doing fairly okay :)

"Most people don't know but I ...”

felt a cute aggression towards wombats when I saw them for the first time

Show us your happy place

This is an old public bath in my neighborhood (Copenhagen). I go there every now and then, mostly Saturday mornings to have a nice nordic sauna :)

What do you listen to when you work?
