Chutzpah*

*courage bordering on arrogance…nerve

Some of the things I am (perhaps all too) proud of:

  • My Swedish heritage.
  • I have travelled to the same number of countries as my age (and through 14 with my three year old and 1 year old in tow).
  • I have spent more than 2000 hours in dance classes since I was five years old.
  • I have had a job as a dancer at an amusement park and I’ve been an extra in a television series.
  • I have shaken Tony Campolo’s hand.
  • I can navigate a motorbike through the chaotic streets of Phnom Penh.
  • Together with my husband and a good friend, I climbed Cambodia’s highest mountain (Mt. Aoral) which easily rose to the top of the “hardest things I’ve ever done in my life” list.
  • I’ve climbed Mt. Kinabalu. In one day.
  • Both my daughters were born in Asia – the first in Thailand, the second in Cambodia.
  • I’ve played in ultimate frisbee tournaments in Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam.
