BEAUTIFUL DREAMER: LAURA SØRENSEN

THIS IS LAURA. SHE FROM DENMARK, AND SHE BELIEVES THAT WE RISE BY LIFTING OTHERS UP.

WHAT PARTS OF YOUR CULTURE AND HERITAGE DO YOU BRING TO YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE?
DENMARK HAS BEEN BUILT ON A FOUNDATION OF A STRONG WELFARE SOCIETY WHICH HAS ENSURED EQUAL RIGHTS AND SECURITY FOR EVERYBODY. THIS CONSTRUCTION IS CREATED ON THE BASIS OF COMMON AGREEMENT THAT LIFTING TOGETHER’ AND EVERYONE DOING THEIR BEST IS A NECESSITY TO CREATE A GOOD LIFE AND SOCIETY FOR EVERYONE. I THINK THIS UNDERSTANDING OF: ‘WE RISE BY LIFTING OTHERS’ IS IMPORTANT TO BRING WITH YOU IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE - ESPECIALLY IN TODAYS SOCIETY WHERE INDIVIDUALISATION AND DETACHMENT HAS BECOME A GROWING FACTOR.

DESCRIBE IN A FEW WORDS WHAT YOU FELT WHEN YOU ARRIVED IN AMERICA FOR THE FIRST TIME:
AS I ARRIVED IN NEW YORK I WAS SIMPLY OVERWHELMED! OVERWHELMED BY THE BIG SKYLINE AND DIVERSITY AMONG THE MANY PEOPLE ON THE STREET. IT FELT LIKE A PLACE YOU COULD DISAPPEAR IN THE CROWD BUT ALSO FINALLY BE SEEN.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE IN AMERICA'S FUTURE?
WITH AMERICA IN THE DOMINANT POSITION OF A GLOBAL SUPERPOWER, I THINK THEY CARRY A BIG OBLIGATION FOR HANDLING GLOBAL MATTERS WHICH IN THESE TIMES ESPECIALLY CONSIDER THE ENVIRONMENTALLY CHALLENGES WE ALREADY ARE AND WILL BE FACING DUE TO GLOBAL WARMING. THEREFORE, I REALLY HOPE THEY REALISE THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE SITUATION AND TO SEE THEM TAKE MORE RESPONSIBILITY BY SIGNIFICANTLY RAISING THEIR AMBITIONS AND FOCUS ON ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM SOLVING - BOTH NATIONALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY BY JOINING GLOBAL CLIMATE AGREEMENTS.
