I am a peacefrog from Copenhagen. I like life, Rock n Roll, literature and seeing beauty in all things...
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I like being stroked on my back...
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Everything involved in facing my fears and jumping head first into things which I am shit-scared of. Poetry slam, film making, acting, playing basket ball for my country, teaching, dancing on stages, speaking in front of big audiences that kind of thing.
How do you define cool?
I don't. I feel it in my bones. If pressed I would say, cool has something to do with heart, soul and authenticity. It can be found everywhere. There are no limits to where and how it happens.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Searching high and low and recognizing that something which is fresh enough to posses the news-factor and strange enough to create the wow-factor and has the potential to catch on... No sun screen needed. We got the factor covered in this one!
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
The insane amount of stories and pictures from all over the world which reminds me of how small we are and how incredible it is to connect with this amazing pulsating global community always awake never asleep. Too many time zones.
What is your favorite trend?
Wow that is a tough one. It has to be something socially beneficial or green. Perhaps the I-Love-You-Project which was my first ever high flyer. So cute - so simple. I really enjoy all the street guerilla trends. They make me laugh. I prefer things that occur organically and not through advertising campaigns etc.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
SEXY CELEBS...(not that I would know?!)
How do you reset to be creative?
Always believe in your heart and don't follow the stream, most folks think the people at the front know where they are going...And the people at the front are being pushed by the people behind them. It is so confusing. Much better to find your own way.
What inspires or excites you?
Life... and my boyfriend luckily!
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Peace education in all primary and secondary schools, yay!
