Idag försöker jag balansera socialt entreprenörskap och konstnärskap. Därför driver gärna jag projekt som främjar mänskliga rättigheter och barns rättigheter men även konstnärliga projekt inom bild, musik eller film. Jag är grundaren och projektledare av föreningen Swedish Human Rights Projekt som har i syfte att driva olika projekt som ska stärka mänskliga rättigheter.  

For as long as I can remember, curiosity has been an inherent part of my nature. It’s my curiosity that has rendered me incredibly versatile. It was purely by chance that I developed my talent for art, but I am eternally grateful for it. Art deepened my understanding, enhanced my empathy, and fortified my patience. It instilled in me a profound respect for nature and life. My curiosity grew stronger, which is why I cherish diversity and different world cultures. Over time, I came to understand the power of a positive attitude towards life and how everything around me contributes to greater creativity and joy. There are no problems, only solutions. I honed the ability to quickly understand people, especially those who hadn’t cultivated their creative side. These individuals often found themselves stuck in negativity and problems instead of seeing solutions. Creating something that doesn’t exist yet is one of the most fantastic feelings one can experience in this life. That’s why I encourage others to explore and discover their creativity as much as possible. Consequently, I’ve often been the one who saw opportunities when others perceived impossibilities. While others saw despair, I saw hope. When others gave up, I found the strength to persist. I firmly believe that I’m not inherently better than anyone else, but I can always strive to be a better version of myself tomorrow. Everyone possesses an inner strength to achieve their dreams, and everyone can express their creativity in their unique way. It’s just a matter of daring to take the first steps. So, my question to you is: What is holding you back from realizing your dreams?
