Why I Decided To Follow My Passion And Move Abroad

DSC_0317Hi, career girls! My name is Emilie, in English it’s Emily, and I am a 21 year-old Danish girl. I just started as an intern here at CGD and I have fallen in love with it already. I love going to the CGD office, meeting the girls, having a laugh and writing some good content. Teaming up with such talented girls is a blessing for me, and I hope to be a part of the CGD team for a very long time!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a creative soul. I love to write, take photographs and take all my ideas to the next level. As a kid, I would spend hours and hours drawing stuff like clothes, houses, people etc. and write letters for my family to reply to. I’ve always wanted to run a blog on my own and have a space where I could voice all my thoughts and ideas.

Having a complex mind full of inspiration is what made me start my own blog this summer. It wasn’t that long ago that I realized that I have a strong desire to change the way girls feel about themselves. I know for a fact that many young girls today are very insecure about themselves and their worth and it kills me to think about how blogging or instagramming can make it worse. So I thought “Why not bring all these thoughts and the will to change into my own blog?”.

I would never have thought it could become such a big thing for me already by now, but what I’ve come to realize is that I already have no clue where I’d be without my blog. I am always writing in my head and shooting photos of all the pretty things I see. My blog is filled with delicious and healthy recipes too – for now, most of it is in Danish, but my recipes are always translated into an English version too! So go check it out!

In fact, my blog really helped my intern application with CGD, the girls saw it, and although they couldn’t read the Danish parts, they really liked my vision and ideas, which just goes to show that if you want something you should definitely go for it, and that you shouldn’t make excuses to show off the work you’re proud of, either!

  1. It must be such a great experience to do an internship in a big office blog (yes well I don’t really know how to call it but I guess you understand ahah)! And you’re right, when you have a blog you start to have several ideas about anything, that’s great!

  2. Hi Emilie,

    I am happy that you touched on what I have been thinking for the longest time – social media is often used as tool to perpetuate the lack of self-esteem and value. The bathroom selfies, duck lips, and butt pics are exhausting. What ideas or suggestions do you have that will give young girls a true sense of self-worth and value?

  3. Hej Emilie

    Hvor er det sejt. Tillykke. Selv om jeg er midt i 30’erne og vist ikke den primære målgruppe, læser jeg dagligt flere af artiklerne her på CGD. Cool, at der nu kommer et dansk touch også.

    Held og lykke. Glæder mig til at læse dine artikler.

  4. Thank you so so much for that comment Imani. Nice to know there are other people out there thinking the same as I do :) My ideas are basically what I write about on my blog, I try and put a huge amount of effort into guiding my readers into a bigger self esteem and much more happiness. For example by providing them with guides for all sorts of things we all go through in life. Feel free to try and translate it via Google or other tool. And if that doesn’t work out for you, please let me know and I’ll work on longer English translations etc.
