I have covered Sweden both from a local and nationl perspective, terror attacks in Europe and I have worked as a correspondent for Swedish National Television in South America. I research, shoot and edit video, write articles, do live reports, host and produce longer tv productions. Social media is a natural part of my work flow.
I was born in a safe academic home in Uppsala, Sweden, studied at University in Brazil and thus prepared the ground to work in any country. I have the tools to take on the world.
Starting out back home
After having finished my bachelor’s degree in Journalism in Rio de Janeiro I moved back to my hometown in Sweden, Uppsala. I got an internship at Swedish TV4’s local news station TV4Nyheterna Uppsala. That eventually led to a summer job which then led to a sequence of jobs within TV4 and the Swedish media conglomeration NTM.
During the summer of 2013 I had managed to work myself up to a summer job at TV4’s national news desk. By this time I had already signed my contract with Swedish National Television. After an interesting summer covering everything from the collapse of Swedish healthcare to misleading food sales it was finally time to move forward to the start of my international career in Brazil.
If you can make it in Brazil…
I spent the year leading up to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil working as a stringer for Swedish National Television (SVT), mostly for the news and sports. I also took on other assignments within SVT and for other customers. Such as Associated Press and Story Productions Brazil.
After the year in Brazil I moved back to Sweden and the port town, also known as the “Front of Sweden”, Gothenburg. So far I have worked as a Researcher and Field Producer at Sweden’s most popular show “På spåret”, News Anchor and Reporter at SVT News West and finally I have reached the goal of my dreams: to work full time as an Investigative Reporter on SVT’s new show “Dold”.

Each week in On the Right Track, two teams of two celebrities take imaginary train rides from one destination to another.

17 year old Thalita is one of the young girls who sells her body around the stadium construction in the Brazilian metropole São Paulo. She started selling sex before the construction started and she saw a significant increase in clients when the building constructors started moving into the neighbourhood Itaquera.
– I still think there will be an even larger increase of clients during the World Cup, says Thalita to Swedish Television’s correspondent in Brazil, Cecilia Vaccari.
We call it “artful soccer” when we see the Brazilians dance along the fields around the world and shine with their technical way of playing. “Jogo bonito”, as they say in Brazil, characterizes the country’s soccer. Gorgeous fints and tricks that lead to beautiful goals. Nowadays promising young players are exported to Europe at a young age and the legendary former national team player and later coach, Dunga, means this makes the new generation of players more cautious.
