My work - other resourses
Here are some of the projects I've been a part of in my spare time.
In 2016 I started a local branch of Förskoleupproret regarding the preschool in Eskilstuna. Förskoleupproret in a non-profit, non-political organisation of people that are working for better conditions
in the Swedish preschool. They are demanding smaller groups of children, more staff and less optional chores. Personnel in the preschool are overrepresented in the statistics of people getting sick from stress due to the pressure and constantly having a guilty conscience towards the children and all the demands that they do not have the proper time to complete.
The facebook-group for Förskoleupproret has over 35 000 members today (march 2022).
In 2016 I started the local branch in Eskilstuna and we arranged local meetings, discussions with politicians and a large manifestation in May 2018 as a local part of a country-wide campaign. In Eskilstuna we had about 500 participants and I spoke at the manifestation as founder. I also got the honor of giving over 25 000 signatures demanding better conditions, collected by Förskoleupproret, to our Minister of Education at the time Gustav Fridolin.

The Fl!cka-project was a campaign from the Ministry of Social Affairs that I became part of 2004. The purpose of the campaign was to inform young girls and boys about the affect that unrealistic ideals in commercials had on self-esteem and our expectations of how girls/boys should look and behave. The focus was to creatie awareness and a place for young people to discuss. I was one of the persons in charge of the community "flicka_klubben" on the webpage "Lunarstorm". I also got to participate in a short tour around the country when the Fl!cka-project traveled to different cities and arranged fairs about media and being critical to sources of messages communicated to us at a daily basis. At the tour I also got to talk in front of a group of teachers about social media and the effect (good and bad) it can have on the individual.
Since my childhood up until 2009 I was part of a cat-club named Mälarkatten that organized cat owners and arranged international cat shows with hundreds of participants. Mälarkatten was a part of the Swedish organisation SVERAK, a part of the international organisation FIFE. I have had different responsibilities in the organization during the years, such as president, secretary, webbmaster and editor of the club magazin. Mälarkatten was cancelled in 2009 due to lack of new members.
I was one of five parents that started and arranged a second-hand-fair for kids clothes each spring and fall between 2015-2018. I had responsibillity for handling the participants and all the communication with them, among other things. I also ran one of the cash registers.
