A little while ago, I was contacted by Anne-Laura Hedegaard, a reporter for the Danish radio show called ‘Spejlet’, which directly translates to mirror. The program, ‘Spejlet’, shows a series of portraits of people between 15 and 32 years old and tries to make a portrait of this generation's youth and all the different lives, thoughts and experiences. As the name suggests, the interesting part of the interview is that during the interview, the interviewee is looking at themselves in a mirror rather than the interviewer. The reason for this is, because we look in the mirror every day, but what happens if we take the time to look at ourselves in the mirror? What emerges if we look ourselves deep in the eye?
For me, it was an honor to be featured on Spejlet. I had a fun chat with Anne-Laura about Nordic Women in STEM, the importance of being in STEM, and why we need to fix the gender ratio within the STEM fields. But I also got to talk about myself, and how I landed in a STEM field.

I would like to thank Spejlet and Anne-Laura for finding me and Nordic Women in STEM interesting topics for their episode!
