Introducing myself and my journal: Independent Living Now

About Me:
Three passports, two children and one passionate drive for a better world - Swedish, Swiss American living in Europe since 1974. I am paralyzed from the breast down due to a riding accident nearly 20 years ago. The love of languages and the richness of different cultures brought me to Europe. My passion for democracy and human rights has become a full time activity. I believe in a world where girls and woman are empowered in all countries and able to participate no matter if they can walk, talk or see.

My Passions:
Democracy and Human Rights

My Challenges:

My Vision for the Future:
A barrier free world

My Areas of Expertise:
Disability issues
