I’m born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark, and moved to Sweden in 2006. I always laugh when thinking about my teenager years cause I was probably the most difficult teenager till date (ask my mama). I’ve been through numerous phases, starting with being a bookworm at the age of 13 where I would read so much that my mama literally threw the books out of the window. After that a wave of coding hit me and I spent hours and hours in front of the computer, fixing HTML & CSS codes, just to realise the love for photography further on and forcing my papa to buy me a Canon. Through the years I learnt the magic of the golden rule in photography and image editing! My fantasy pictures really hit jackpot on Instagram and I got to be someone there.
The most common question I get is why on earth I’m Thursdaygal, when I could be any day in the week. And as always, I tell them not on monday, tuesday, wednesday, friday, saturday, sunday but on THURSDAY. I’ve been such a die hard fan of The Weeknd since 2011 (it has been worse before, I’m much better now lol) that I decided to keep him as my alias on the internet.
I’m currently studying the Information Architecture program at the University of Borås, where I will be collecting a degree in Front-End Web development – inshallah. Choosing this degree was really easy – I LOVE everything IT and web!
I have worked as Shiftleader at Espresso House as well, and even though it was the best job I’ve ever had, I still chose to leave the position for a degree in Borås. Still not regretting it. My dream has always been to build a business I can look back on and tell my kids about, and alhumdullilah, succeeded with that last year as well. As for January -19 I have served over 50 creative women in business, helping them set a visual symbol on their brand/business by freelancing as a graphic designer.
My best friend is Photoshop and I love a hot cuppa coffee whilst watching Koffee With Karan on sundays. I currently live with my husband and my favorite part of the day is when we cook!
