Title: Partner Liaison and Test Person Coordinator

My role at Funka

I make sure that we create and maintain good relationships with our test persons who participate in user tests and with disabled persons organisations.

The driving force of the job

For me, accessibility is about human rights. Being part of Funka's work for a more inclusive society feels stimulating in several ways!

Previous jobs

I have a Master in Human Rights where questions about rights for people people with disabilities have been my focus. I also have a Bachelor of Science in Social Psychology. My previous job was as an insurance officer in Gothenburg. I have also worked a lot with young people, for example as a tour leader through Sweden's Students Unions, teachers for unaccompanied refugee minors and camps for young people with different types of disabilities.

Personal

I originally come from the rural town Sveg in northern Sweden and have family and friends scattered around Sweden, which brings one and another trip to visit loved ones. As a newcomer to Stockholm, there is also a lot for me to discover here. When I do not walk along the streets of Stockholm, I like to explore Netflix's range, embroidery and dancing salsa.

For a long time, I have tried to learn to play harmonica and hopefully I will soon be able to perform a piece where someone recognizes the melody.
