Three questions to our intern Tord Ranheim who trained with us between January and March of this year.
Hello Tord, great that you do your internship with us!
– I think so too!
– How is it that you have chosen Realstars?
– I studie the last semester of my Bachelor’s degree in global studies, which includes a 2-month internship at a business that deals with global issues. I looked at various internships and was attracted to Realstars because you are working in a creative way with subjects like ‘fashion for fair sex’ and ‘creativity for fair sex’, etc. To be working creatively in the workplace is worth its weight in gold.
What have you been doing so far during your internship?
– Wow, a lot of different things. First of all, I had to educate myself about just how widespread and despicable human trafficking really is (Kajsa Ekis Ekman’s book “Varat och Varan” is a good starting point). Then, I’ve blogged, tweeted, written articles, administered innovative meetings, thought and pondered, attended lectures for secondary schools, called and pestered different businesses (telling them that they should confront human trafficking issues head on and not just pretend that there are no issues), written more articles, attended fairs, planned street actions and discussed human trafficking and sex trafficking with a lot of people.
What do you think is the most important point when it comes to stopping human trafficking for sexual purposes?
– I think, in the end, that it is a personal challenge for us all. The belief that a human being is always so much more than just an object,is essential. If you see a human being as an object to use as any other object, then you have lost some of your humanity. If that happens we all have a problem. It goes without saying that I can never respond to an object in the same way as I do a human being. It is a beautiful metaphysical insight that is all about being human. Yep, that’s it, the way it is.
