MY STORY

Louise was born in Australia and lived in Iran and Ukraine before moving to Sweden at the age of 11. She has during the years found three passions, music, guiding and Japan (which has been her focus both studies and in profession).

Louise has always liked traveling, learning languages and learn about other cultures. But she is not only interested in other cultures, she is also very interested in the Swedish culture.

Louise has been playing the Swedish traditional instrument “nyckelharpa” since she was 14 years old and became a “Riksspelman” in 2015.

Apart from music, Louise’s interest in the Swedish culture, history, society, etc. led her to become a Qualified Stockholm Guide in English and Japanese in 2018.
