My name is Eva but my friends call me Grodan or Zaba, which is frog in Swedish and Polish. I am Swedish and will be 30 this year. I moved to London when I was 18, life has been hard at times but very rewarding. I have worked in Management, Optics, Law and now I am doing something governmental. I have studied Politics and International Relations at university here in London for 3 years and finally graduated last year.
I always do stupid things and believe everything should tried at least once. Everything from the Marathon and the Swedish Classic (Vasaloppet 90 km cross country skies, Vätternrundan 300 km by bike, Vansbrosimmet 3km swim and Lidingöloppet 30 km run) to eating frogs and snails should be done once.
So this year I am running the marathon. I am running and fundraising for Lepra Health in Action and would love to break my fundraising target of £1500.
We, the west, have had such good fortune in life to be healthy and educated having access to schools and hospitals others are less fortunate. Even the smallest donation goes a long way, £10 can buy educational aids and a scholarship for a poor child affected by disease of poverty.
