OYW reppin' Sweden

Hey I'm back from Bangkok now! One Young World Summit 2015 in Bangkok was absolutely amazing! I’ve never been in the same room as so many inspiring and intelligent people at the same time. This experience has been life changing. I went there as Sweden’s delegate for OYW summit and returned as a OYW Ambassador. I connected with people from all over the world who taught me what’s happening in their countries, and together we will develop new ideas and projects to solve various global issues. I'm so greatful that I can call the people I've met my friends - we are the one's who will change the world!

 

Thank you to UNDP, RFSU, (S) and Tage Erlanders scholarship for international co-operation, and my family and private donors. Without you, I wouldn’t have been able to go and represent my home country, Sweden. 

 

First day of the summit!

"We're on a boat ** Don't you ever forget" haha! the security was insane. And we're all thankful for that, because we were 1300 people from all over the world on this summit, working on ways to make our world to a better place!
 
So most of the pictures were taken on the first day, because let's be honest. We were too busy to take photos

Sadly, I had to get going to the airport shortly after the closing ceremony, otherwise I would have missed the flight. But there will be a next year, and a year after that and so on, for me to meet inspirational people I can call my friends since I'm now officially a One Young World Ambassador!!

Stockholm Film Fest

Last night I went to the opening of Stockholm's International Film Festival with Isabella. I had no idea that it was a red carpet event, but they had me at great cinema, free chips and champagne. I was like "Bring IT!" I didn't have time to eat dinner before the films so I obviously had to start binging on snacks.
 
Anyway, we saw Hingsten, which opened for Mediterranea. And I'm telling you, everybody should see Mediterranea. It's such an important film. 
 
 

What if...

 
What if Frida Kahlo lived today? Would her paintings feature her taking a bathroom selfie at a house party while doing the duckface? I don't know, but I kind of wanna know...
 
 

I Vogue on

"Mountain at my gates"
 
"The land of the hidden ones"

Frida is my patronus

Since I’m tired of all the slutty cats/slutty anything, macho douches and let’s not forget the CA-costumes, I decided to dress up as a female icon I look up too. Can you guess who? Judging from the flowers in my braided hair it seems pretty easy to guess – Frida Kahlo. Looking at my new brows I start to wonder why I ever started plucking them in the middle. I kind of like the whole unibrow, McDonald’s M thing. I mean, it’s not like I’m plucking the rest of my eyebrows anyways, right? So why bother? I look fierce anyhow!  

 

Squad
I say put down your tweezers!
 
Bathroom selfies are obviously a must do when you're at a house party. Plus, I needed a picture with my red lipstick on.
