Graduation Caps


My education has not only provided the foundation for the rest of my experiences, but has also made me a lifelong learner who is eager to gain more skills and knowledge. Take a look at my academics below.

International Economic Consulting (MA), Aarhus University

September 2020 - June 2022

My Master's degree in Economics and Business Administration, 

specialised in International Economic Consulting further increased my understanding of international business. And how business and economies are linked, and dependent on each other.

This was apparent during a real world consulting project simulation in collaboration with Novozymes A/S.

  • During this project, I was selected as team-leader to further refine and learn new skills.

  • As team leader I was responsible for guiding and motivating our team, delegate and communicate with my team.

  • Manage the project timeline and activities.

My team and I were awarded with a certificate for Best Business Conduct.

This Master's degree enabled me to grow academically but also personally allowing me to gain a better understanding of myself. Additionally, my study program pushed my limits above and beyond my self-imposed silver linings, stretching my capabilities beyond what I thought was possible. 

For my Master's thesis which was related to foreign aid and economic/socio-economic development, we were awarded with the highest grade possible.

Economics and Business Administration (BSc), Aarhus University

September 2017  - June 2020

I started my BSc in Economics and Administration at Aarhus University in 2017. My skills and discipline acquired from IB prepared me well for university. I further developed my skills given my role as Class Representative. The different subjects I had during the 3 years as a BA student has allowed me to gain a thorough understanding of the business world, but also linking the influences of economics on business at micro and macro level.
Economics and Business Administration has given me both theoretical knowledge and hands-on practice collaborating with companies to write and solve projects related to business issues. I have been able to refine and gain more skills during my education and this led us to receive the highest grade possible for our Bachelor dissertation which was related to how a sustainable business model could work as a strategic asset for businesses in Denmark.

International Baccalaureate (IB)

August 2016 - June 2017

I attended the IB programme at Ikast-Brande Gymnasium in 2015 and graduated in 2017. My IB subjects have been as follows:

  • Business Management, Biology, English, and Danish at higher level.

  • History and mathematics at standard level.

IB also allowed me to focus on out-of-school activities, known as CAS (Creativity, Activity, and Service), broadening my perspective and not only focusing on education.

My time as an IB student really prepared me for university and at the same time taught me to have an open mindset, understand other perspectives, and be a lifelong learner.

When I graduated from IB I was awarded with the Bilingual Diploma.



The fact that we are always learning throughout our life despite our age and how much experience we have, is something I find amazing and beautiful. I appreciate being able to further improve and gain new skills. This is why I always look for opportunities to add to my skillset.

Health is Wealth

I strongly believe in work-life balance and therefore I make sure to invest in myself as well. I truly enjoy a morning walk where I can feel and take in the calmness and beauty of nature. Additionally, having been an elite-level swimmer, I love a good cardio and resistance training which fires me up with adrenaline and makes me feel alive.

Travelling & Photography

Major Creativity Boosts

I love to travel and experience our beautiful world, meeting new people, and learning about other cultures. It's something I really cherish. Two years ago, I had the opportunity to travel to Nepal, and it was just so beautiful. Seeing the vast snow-capped mountains and the tip of Mount Everest was a unique experience in itself.

Music, Movies & Good books


I very much enjoy listening to music whenever I can. It is a great way of realising and expressing emotions. I enjoy a variety of music ranging from pop, jazz, and classical. Listening to music is a great way for me to disconnect and relax. I feel the same way about movies, as I can simply sit on the sofa and really relax. I enjoy fiction but recently read a book within the psychoanalysis genre called  "The Courage to Be Disliked" by Ichiro Kishimi and Fumitake Koga and it's now one of my favourites.

Family and Friends 

True Enjoyment

Having a great time with family and friends is something I cherish. I often visit my family both in Denmark and abroad to spend time and enjoy with them and make new memories. The same goes for my friends, where we enjoy get-togethers, relax and just being in each others company. Having such connection with both my family and friends gives me comfort, support and joy.
