For our second Women Crush Weekly, I was lucky enough to speak with Nadja Forsberg, fellow Swede and co-founder of Swedish Stockings, a conscious and sustainable pantyhose brand.
Meet Nadja Forsberg
Born and raised in Upplands Väsby, Sweden, at the age of 20 Nadja Forsberg started studying journalism. Upon finishing her education she started working at SVT (a Swedish National Public TV Broadcaster) with factual programmes and documentaries. It was during her time at SVT that she came up with the idea of Swedish Stockings, a sustainable stockings company that she founded together with Linn Frisinger shortly thereafter.
What do you spend your time doing?
When I am not working I spend time with my family and friends. Being an entrepreneur, sometimes the line between working, networking and social life becomes blurred but I really value and protect the time I have with my family.
The obligatory, what’s your stance on sustainability and ethics when it comes to fashion?
What are you passionate to change about the world?
Where does your drive come from?
What do you wish 18 years old you had known?
That I can chill. Don't worry all the time and make sure you enjoy the scenery.
If you could thank one person, who would it be and why?
My parents for equipping me with a strong moral compass and teaching me the importance of always treating people well. I am a strong believer in Karma and that kindness and consideration towards others are crucial and effective when it comes to collaborations and relationships.
If you could be anyone for a day, who would it be and why?
(Question from last week's Women Crush Wednesday Jessica Kim Evans)
I´d choose Dalai Lama to get a glimpse of his wisdom and knowledge. Also to get some of his tools for acceptance and tolerance that I can use in my life.
What question do you want to pass on to the next Women Crush Wednesday?
What are you aiming for in 2018?
