Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

I grew up in Copenhagen, Denmark and have practised in Denmark most of my life. Since I finished my Bachelor's degree in Political Science last winter, I am now fully focused on playing professional badminton. For the last year I have been training at the International Badminton Academy in Copenhagen under coach Michael Kjeldsen and I have improved a lot since then. I have always been a big fan of badminton and so it gives me great pleasure to have the privilege to play full time. I really enjoy the cultural exchange that is offered from travelling to international tournaments and meeting people from all over the world. I look forward to the years ahead to see how long hard work and dedication will take me.
