Hi, I’m Anja!

I was born in Southern Russia but moved to Southern Sweden (Malmö) in 2014 and I’m now living my life speaking three languages: Swedish, English, and Russian. In May 2016 I started eating plant-based food and I’m happy to inspire everyone to this sustainable lifestyle.

Being an educated film and multi-media director, I’ve never worked in that area. I created an interactive movie for my diploma project and had a vision of interactive theatres where the audience gets to decide how the story will develop – my teachers said I was too ambitious. What can I say… it was back in 2005. Now we see things like that on Netflix.

I’ve spent almost 10 years working as a department manager in retail giant H&M in three different countries – Russia, Sweden, and South Africa. In that time I’ve re-discovered myself as a recruiter, trainer, and mentor.

Now it’s time to put all my passions and skills together – I just graduated as a Content Manager from Malmö Yrkeshögskola (November 2020).

I cherish projects I’ve been working on as a unique and valuable experience. That is why I decided to create this portfolio where each project represents a blog post so you can learn more about the process, my takeaways, and feel the joy of creating with some behind-the-scenes content. Sharing is caring! 🙂
