Monica is an independent anthropologist, journalist and author based in Copenhagen.

Monica is dedicated to tell stories of everyday thinking and living by using her curios anthropological eyes.

I will work on an autofiction that centers on the encounter with sickness and death and the existential reflections and choices that follow. Death is often seen as the end of something. In my narrative – taking the death of my parents as the point of departure- it becomes a beginning. Working title of project: Till death sets us free.
