As a three year old, I went skiing for the first time and the following season I participated in my first race. With Anja Parson as a neighbor and biggest idol was it no doubt that I wanted to be the best in the world like her. As a youth I learned quickly that I loved winning and hated to loose.
The season 09/10 I raced my first international race, the Trofeo Topolino where I came in second after Mikaela Shiffrin. Two years later it was time for the Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck and this time I was not satisfied with silver, so I went home with a gold medal in my bag. Youth Olympic Games was a fantastic event and inspired me a lot.
The following season, 12/13 became a great year for me when I debuted in the World Cup, won my first European Cup and won the Junior World Championships in slalom.
Last year I also took gold in the Junior World Championships, but this time in team. I took silver in the Swedish Championships and was top 30 in the World Cup four times with a 13th place as the best.
During the preparations for the season 14/15 I injured my knee, which resulted in a season where I now have to follow the World Cup on TV. I'm incredibly excited about the next season, and my goal to be the best in the world, it remains!
