Which player most inspired you and why? Anne Dot Eggerts and Cathrine Paaske Sørensen.

Which coach most inspired you? Jan Malm, who was my coach at Dame junior team in Brøndby. He managed to create a great team out of many great individualists. And he is one of the big reasons that I have achieved so much with my football.

Toughest opponent? Kelly Smith and Marta.

What are your memories of your first club as a child? A club with a great unity, where everyone from the youngest players to the seniors knew each other; a place where there was also room for seriousness and personal goals.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Be sure to constantly give yourself small targets, both in training and in matches, and strive continuously to improve. And enjoy playing football, it should be fun but spiced with dedication.
