“I admire her for being so young and so brave. Travel with little
money and trust that fate will give you what you need. Very few women dare
to go alone the world like her. She visits the places that tourists ignored
and board material for future books.”
– Alberto, fellow surfer
My name is Monica. I’m a journalist.
I want to give the people a voice that echoes throughout the world, how ever that might sound to you. It’s the reason why I chose to study journalism and it’s the reason I travel.
I’m a travel-addict. I can’t stay in one place for long. My home country is Sweden and the only reason I’m staying there from time to time is to rest and earn money to travel again.
During my last trip to Africa I was doing a lot of work as a freelancer, but it never really became visible here. Mostly because of my paranoia, “what if the wrong people read this? The ones that can put a stick into my wheel?” During spring 2013 you can follow my trip in west Africa. I will bring you breathtaking scenery and describe the daily work of a freelance journalist. Because that is what I think we all need right now; honest words about the struggles and winnings to show the world.
