The Dandelion Foundation

I'm thrilled to share something deeply meaningful to me— the creation of The Dandelion Foundation. It's more than just a project; it's the realization of my larger vision, rooted in compassion and aimed at transforming lives.

The journey of The Dandelion Foundation began on April 26, 2024, its origins go back even further, to April 21, 2019. On that pivotal day, faced with desperation, I made a decision: to sell everything I owned. Looking back, I realize I had been struggling for a long time. It wasn't until I turned 27 that I took control, enrolling in a coaching program to shape my destiny.

Losing my father to suicide in 2006 left a void that seemed insurmountable. However, amidst the darkness, his departure granted me an unexpected gift—the power to rebuild myself. Through volunteer work and a nomadic lifestyle across Denmark, I embarked on a healing journey that transformed my life. The Dandelion Foundation is my tribute to him, symbolized by the dandelion—his favorite flower.

In Denmark, 32% of women lose their sense of self—a statistic I was once a part of. For years, I wandered aimlessly, disconnected from myself and others. My father's death plunged me into darkness, a vortex of pain I carried until 2023. Through it all, The Dandelion Foundation emerged as my beacon of hope.

This foundation is my lifeline—a sanctuary for young women to heal, thrive, and rediscover their identities. It's also a haven for animals like Gutuk, the Sun Bear, whose eyes met mine in 2013, reflecting pain and injustice. The Dandelion Foundation is my pledge to end violence against women, to cease harming myself, and to extend compassion to the natural world—a promise to honor my father's memory and Gutuk's suffering.
