Hello, Hej, Hola. This is my story!
My name is Frida and I grew up in the north of Sweden where I dreamed of being a war journalist - I blame my curious nature. Many years later I am still curious. My interests led me to a background in communication, social science and business - and currently to the Umeå institute of Design. I am now finishing my M.F.A in Interaction Design. I graduated from the Industrial Design Intensive at the same school.
Last year I was interning as interaction designer for a global non-profit branch of Laerdal Medical in Stavanger, Norway. I got to challenge myself everyday with designing for healthcare sector and people in countries who need it the most. I am particularly interested in our society, sociology, healthcare design, service design and user-centered design. When not studying I am dancing, learning languages or skiing. I believe you never stop learning. As a northern Swede by heart, I am not afraid of the snow - neither to go snowmobile driving.
Don’t hesitate to contact me!
