OUR TEAM

Ulrika

Founder and creative motor

I am a mother of four wonderful individuals, and an entrepreneur that loves creating value through deals and investments. Sustainable solutions and investments that have a positive effect on society lay close to my heart. What inspires me most is meeting people and hearing their life stories.

Speaking of investments, Do Good Now is my best one so far. In which I get my return non-monetarily, and often indirectly. As you read this, people are taking it upon themselves to sell another human. For me, investing in education and other activities in order to reduce the demand for human trafficking (with commercial and sexual purpose), is the best thing we can do. We need to give more children the opportunity to be just that: children.

Eva

Moderator and Coordinator

I am a behavioural scientist who lives in Stockholm with my husband and my three children, and have worked with business development for many years. Right now I’m in the works of creating my own company within the design and architecture of commercial real estate.

My children are now practically grown ups, and I now have more time and energy to engage myself in doing good, not only for me and my family, but others as well. Ulrika and I, together with this organisation, are driven by the same view of the world; and she has given me the opportunity to do this. I have completely taken this statement from Ulrika to my heart; “It’s time we take human rights to a new level and start talking about human responsibility”.

Therese

Fundraising

As a role model for my children, I always want to try to be a part of the solution. To simply live my core values. I have always had a sincere desire to maintain a positive worldview, so it feels sickly exciting to step into the role as responsible for Fundraising and manage it in the best possible way.

For me, it's all about vibration. Have you thought that we humans consist of about 60% water, an area where competent researchers in molecular medicine, quantum physics and biochemistry actually collaborate right now. And which has now been able to show that water can have a memory. Then think what responsibility we have towards each other, how crystals or chaos are formed within us, depending on the treatment. What would happen if we questioned our approach to ourselves and the world? Reprogram the truths and values ​​that no longer serve us, and instead honor our intuition and dare to follow our dreams!

Trends create the conditions for commitment and change where attendance should be number one on the barometer. Making the importance of presence visible can be a good start. To just observe in order to then be able to act from our inner core. With a focus on collaboration, we can then reach the stars. Together : )

To be part of making a difference is a privilege that many may take for granted, but which means extra to me as an adoptee. Being involved and influencing, spreading knowledge and even being able to change a child's worldview is completely invaluable. And gives us hope for a sustainable world for the children of the future.

One breath at a time, where do you choose to put your superpower and strength?

Spread the GOOD VIBES, Let´s Go!

Olivia

Event Coordinator and Head of Podcast

Thanks to my mothers commitment, passion, and stubbornness, as well as the support of my father and love for travel, I’ve had the privilege to see many different parts of the world; parts that more often than not are very different from Stockholm. My understanding of different cultures and injustices that are based on where you are born, has given me insight to the fact that I have a responsibility to do whatever I can to help contribute to the work for human rights.

Outside of our projects in Nepal, I would like to deepen my focus within the problems relating to human trafficking in Sweden. It’s a bigger, and more organised problem than most of us think, because it’s so well hidden, and Sweden is very politically correct on the surface. I want to work in collaboration with the police and justice agencies in order learn more about this, as well as look deeper into the legal points regarding the pornography industry.

Amanda

Trainee

Hey! My name is Amanda Byström. I am 21 years old and come from the small archipelago town of Nynäshamn.

My great interest in human rights led me to the bachelor's program global development at Stockholm University, where I am now in my final semester. During these almost three years of studies, I have heard and read about different ways that you as a human being and non-profit organization, after all, have the opportunity to create positive change in the world. That I now, here at Do Good Now, get the chance to take part in the fantastic work and see that it really makes a difference is not only reassuring but also incredibly motivating. It is actually possible to make a difference!

Nora

Trainee

I am studying at Stockholm University, where I am currently studying the last semester of the bachelor's program Global Development, and have had the opportunity to be an intern at Do Good Now Global during the spring semester 2022.

It is an incredible opportunity to turn theory into practice by participating in DGN's daily activities. Human rights and social issues have always been a central topic in both my education and in private, and it will be extremely rewarding to gain in-depth knowledge and work with humanitarian topics. I am convinced that my time at DGN will give me experience for life both in terms of organizational issues, and above all about trafficking.

Tobias

Trainee

Hey! My name is Tobias Forsgren, 22 years old and comes from Gävle. I study Global Development at Stockholm University, which focuses on challenges in our world that need to change, including poverty, global structures and democratic issues.

I believe in people's personal agents to be able to shape and create their own future and hence the opportunity to practice at Do Good Now Global was obvious to me. People who are exposed to sex buyers and other forms of trade where their own body and future are the commodity, have been deprived of their personal agent and hence the opportunity to shape their own lives. Trade in the world has never before been as cross-border as it is today, which, despite its benefits, has resulted in problems and vulnerability for a large group of individuals. This makes Do Good Now Global's work more important than ever and I look forward to being part of the solution to one of the world's oldest and most heinous crimes, commodification of another person's body.

Anna

Trainee

My name is Anna Carlsson, I am 23 years old and come from Norrtälje.

I started my candidate in Global Development in the late summer of 2019, and am now in the run-up to the last semester where we also get a chance for an internship. The education has given great insight and understanding of how different people's life situation can look like around the world, something that feels very valuable. Throughout my education, I have felt that human rights and women's rights are some of the topics that interested me extra much - so I immediately jumped at the chance to practice at Do Good Now.

To be able to participate in DGN's activities around human trafficking and modern slavery is a very special opportunity to get close to a, for many, totally life-crucial work. I think the organization's values ​​around helping people help themselves are extremely important and something that more people should follow, no one should be in or risk ending up in modern slavery.

Jonatan

Lecture and Fundraising

Hi, my name is Jonatan Strandqvist. I am 26 years old from Malmö and I'm an intern at DoGoodNow during the fall of 2021!

I am doing this internship as a part of my bachelors degree in Human Rights at Lunds University and when given the opportunity by DGN to work with humanitarian and human rights issues I didn't hesitate a second to take it!

I am a social character who loves social and stimulating activities in the forms of business and pleasure during every hour of the day.

On a side note, I do love football in all its forms, both as a form of entertainment and also for its societal role!

Denise

Event coordinator and copy writer

As Ulrika’s youngest daughter, I’ve had the opportunity to get a first hand seat to my mother’s endeavours to create a positive change in the world. I have gotten to help out practically on numerous projects. Whether that be singing on tour along the Swedish West coast with the goal of raising awareness about human trafficking, travelling to Nepal in search of new grounds to lay a transit home, or the simple task of holding up various objects in an auction where the proceeds go to Do Good Now.

When I’m not helping out here at Do Good Now, I write songs and love learning about philosophy and psychology. I hope to one day be able to give a percentage of my income to different beneficence projects; but at the moment, I’m happy to help out where I can, and love seeing Do Good Now grow and expand as a philanthropic organisation.

Charlotta

Volunteer

I am a student in Lund where I am currently studying a bachelor's degree in peace and conflict science with a focus on social anthropology. I have always been interested in human rights issues but did not really know how to turn my interest into real deeds.

Now that I have come in contact with Do Good Now Global and the team, I feel that I get a chance to try working on issues that I am really passionate about, in a way that feels uplifting and where a real difference is made! I hope to learn a lot about how a non-profit organization works, and how you can do good for people in many different ways by running and supporting local projects.

Lovisa

Volunteer

My name is Lovisa Leijon Schöld and I am 23 years old. I’m in my last semester at the graduate program Global Development, where I study global connections between culture, politics, and economy. My education has also touched on subjects like power, identity, and political institutions and how injustices and inequality gives cause for different forms of resistance - whether it be in the shape of everyday and small-scale protests, or transnational mobilisation that creates headlines worldwide in the media.

Personally, I’m especially interested in topics that refer to the modern slavery and women’s rights. Here at Do Good now Global, my main areas of responsibility are social media, research, and event planning.

We are a non profit organisation where everyone works on a voluntary basis or, in some few cases, to a very reduced compensation.
