Mother's Day Q&A with Karoline Maria
This year we celebrate Mother's Day by focusing on one of the many inspiring women we work with. We’ve visited Karoline Maria in her family home in Aarhus, for a chat about Mother's Day and her new role as a mother.
I come from a large nuclear family with a mother, father and 4 children. Me and my two sisters especially always celebrated Mother's Day. It hasn't necessarily been anything big, but we always remembered and celebrated the day. For the past several years, I have given my mother a lunch or an experience to do together. I feel that Mother's Day is a day to be extra grateful for having your mother, as well as for having the opportunity to be a mother yourself - not everyone has that opportunity. It's also something I think about a lot in my work with Instagram, especially on a day like Mother's Day, not to bombard my followers with posts, as it could easily be that there is someone who has lost their mother, or someone who is struggling with pregnancy.
I also think it's important to be able to speak about things other than children when I'm with my friends. It's important to me to preserve my identity, and some of the small things in everyday life that I have always appreciated. For example, my skin care routine, which I have luckily stuck to - and reaching out to my friends, remembering small and big things that happens in their lives.
