Salka Wollesen Breum
Our main teacher in Colombia and also one of the foundation’s founders is 27 year old Salka. She has a bachelor’s degree in Spanish Language and Culture from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Since 2011, she has traveled a lot in Latin America, and she quickly fell in love with Colombia. Here she has been traveling from north to south and also studied a semester at Universidad del Cauca in Popayán. Since her first visit in Colombia, it has affected her quite a lot whenever she saw young pregnant girls. Therefore, she has wanted to help prevent the problem for some time. Now the dream is becoming reality with the work she is doing with Mi Cuerpo/Min Krop.
