My Story and how I got here

“Every risk is worth taking as long as it’s for a good cause, and contributes to a good life.”

-Richard Branson-

Hi! My name is Martina, but my family and friends call me Tina. Originally, I come from Slovakia, where I lived until I pursued a Bachelor in Law. During my studies, I realized I would love to try living abroad, so I packed my things and left for Denmark.

I took a risk, in 2015 I moved to Denmark, worked as a dishwasher for a year until I got accepted to the University to finish my dream Master´s Program, which would open the door to a career in the Human Rights sector. 

I completed a Master in International Security and Law at the University of Southern Denmark in 2018. This is where my life as a student officially ended and the real-life had begun. In the meantime, I fell in love with Denmark, its culture, people and decided to kick-off my career in the NGOs sector.

In 2020 I started my own website  Empowerment Journey, which represents a place where I can share with you my journey as an ex-pat living in the beautiful capital of Denmark, but mostly I want to explore topics that I am passionate about, learn about the complexity of the problems based on research and facts while adding my own opinion.

Through my journey as an ex-pat for almost 5 years, I have gained a whole new perspective on my personal life and world. This website is the beginning of exploring and shaping my perspective on the topics that matter.

By empowering myself first I can continue to empower others. That is the ultimate goal, vision, and mission.
