Journalist [+ more] into everyday East Africa & South Sudan – Words l People l Expression l Movement l Media

In 2000, I moved Serbia to establish the Next Stop Serbia campaign aiming at breaking down stereotypes between Serbs and Danes. The campaign promoted civic action and creativity by making people collaborate via personal interests. From 2005-10 I worked in northern Uganda and Tanzania for an international NGO. Since July 2011 I have worked independently with various assignments in Kenya, Tanzania, South Sudan and Denmark.

My base is presently Copenhagen where I am pursuing a Master of Arts in African Studies. Still combined with longer stays in East Africa.
