Inspiration – when and how did you start?
I grew up watching my aunt make the (Greenlandic) national costume since I was a little girl. My aunt has passed away, and I use her creations to decorate with, to sort of keep her around. It inspires and motivates me.

I would like to use my education in sales, to some day open my own boutique, where I can sell my own products.

It means a lot to me, I am following it through the internet and in magazines such as: Femina, Alt For Damerne, Kig Ind etc.
