October 2018 to July 2019:
Communication assistant with the Erasmus Mundus Master’s Programme

During the first year of my two year masters’ degree I 
produced content, articles and interviews for the programme website and social media channels. I also assisted the admissions team in shaping admission letters and general information regarding the admission process.

Working alongside the programme coordinator in Aarhus, Denmark gave me great time-managing and organisational skills, as balancing a full-time degree with a demanding job took planning and discipline.

February 2018 – August 2018:
Lindhardt & Ringhof - Internship: Full-time

Lindhardt & Ringhof is the largest publishing house in Denmark. I worked as a journalist in the press department, alongside five journalists and two other interns in an editorial environment that was fast paced and very well planned.

During my time at L&R, I managed press strategies for new publications, produced articles, interviews, feature stories and podcasts on www.Forlagsliv.dk, the biggest literature news website in Denmark. I also planned and initiated livestream sessions that were broadcasted on social media channels.

Working and writing for L&R learned me the value of timing and trained me further in seeing the good story in seemingly niche literature and how to present it to other media organisations to ensure the best exposure.


August 2017 - February 2018:

The Royal Danish Embassy in the UK - Internship: Full-time


As the only intern in the department of communication, culture and public diplomacy, I was responsible for publishing the embassy's newsletter, maintaining a strong presence on social media and producing various articles for the website. I was also tasked with producing video-material for use in the promotion of events and recruitment.

At the Royal Danish Embassy I trained my ability to quickly adapt to a set of specific formalities and procedures that permeate a foreign office. I also learned to quickly analyse news stories and determine the potential for public relations gains.

Working with other departments such as the trade office, Invest-In-Denmark, and the defense department allowed me to enhance my teamworking abilities.

June 2016 – August 2017:

The Danish Rowing Federation (DFfR) - Journalist: Part-time

While I was a journalist for the DFfR, it was my responsibility to produce new content in the shape of news, interviews and feature articles. I managed to write, edit and publish more than 100 articles for the DFfR while working part time, next to my undergraduate studies. I further assisted DFfR in migrating from one content management system (CMS) to another over the summer.

I had my trial by fire when DFfR hosted the world’s largest rowing event. I was tasked with covering it, and I was solely in charge of creating the overall media strategy for the four-day event that had more than 3500 athletes participating and a worldwide audience. Long hours and close corporation with our on- site photographer, allowed me to write 14 articles in four days.

Academic achievements:

2019 - 2020:

Master's Degree: Financial and Business Journalism at City University of London.


I am currently honing my journalistic skills further at City, University of London, learning the tools of the trade in regards to financial jouranlism and business reporting.


2018 – 2019:

Master's Degree: Erasmus Mundus Master’s Programme in Journalism, Globalisation and Media at Aarhus University.

Studying the perhaps most diverse postgraduate programme in the world, with fellow journalists from almost 40 different nations, trained in utilizing cultural differences and different international insights for engaging storytelling with a global scope.


More information regarding the programme and its merits can be found here: http://mundusjournalism.com


2016 – 2018:

Master’s Degree: Journalism and Communication at Roskilde University, Denmark

During my time on this master's I gained competencies in the fields of investigative journalism, data-based research, corporate, political and strategic communication and public relations.

I also conducted thorough research in contemporary political rhetoric, resulting in a study entitled “Trumpism – a study of fascist communication”. The study received the highest possible mark in Denmark (A/12) for its nuanced perspectives on signs of neo-fascism in the speeches of Donald J. Trump, and for its critical analysis of the qualitative data.

I chose not to complete the programme at Roskilde University, but start the Erasmus Mundus Master's instead.

September 2014 – December 2014:

Undergraduate Degree: Journalism and English Literature at University of Sussex, UK.


In pursuit of a broader journalistic and academic horizon, I arranged and funded a semestre at the esteemed University of Sussex. Here, I completed courses such as "Questioning the Media" with first class honours (72%), "Journalism, Research and Writing". During the semestre I encountered my first taste of journalism and academia beyond the borders of Denmark. An experience that I now owe a great deal.

September 2013 – 2016:

Undergraduate Degree: Journalism and English at Roskilde University.

During my undergraduate degree, I received the highest possible mark in all English courses and modules (A/12). I also received an unweighted average mark of 9,4. I ranked top 5 of my journalism class during the mid-degree seven-hour written test of which 68% of the cohort failed.

During my undergraduate, I did a group-study where we closely examined Danish radio news and their quoting-procedures, in which we found several faults. My bachelor’s thesis was written alonside a team of five other students. In this, we studied how five major Danish newspapers covered culturally distant nations. Thesis was highly marked (B/10) for its originality, its strong methodological approach and its findings.
