How long have you been a supporter of Childhood?

I have been a supporter of Childhood for two years now.

Why did you choose Childhood?

I chose Childhood because as a mother of three boys, I think that Childhood’s mission of keeping all children safe is very important. It is something we cannot take for granted in this world. 

What is your favorite childhood memory?

One of my favorite childhood memories was swimming in the lake “Kottla Sjön” outside Stockholm with my mom and sister. Another one was making “knäck” candy with my grandmother at Christmas time.

What are your wishes for Childhood in 2016?

My wishes for Childhood are that they can become a leading global organization for Child Protection. My dream is for Childhood to complete its mission and not be necessary in the future, and that all the children in the world will finally be safe and happy.
