Elin Andersson was born with an incurable eye disease that gradually takes her vision away. As a child, she had a visual acuity of about 30 %, and today it is approximately 6 %. In brief, the disease entails a gradual deterioration of vision, and currently, there is no corrective or treatment available.

In her lecture "When the World Disappears," Elin shares how she has chosen to defy her illness and disability. Despite the fears, she has chosen to live life to the fullest, in the ways she can. With a focus on moving forward, she has challenged herself, learned, and overcome much more than she thought was possible. She talks about how, with the help of her mindset and a large dose of stubbornness, she has navigated both small and large challenges in life and embraced the constant change she lives in.

About Elin Andersson: Elin Andersson lives in Skellefteå, is an educated high school and middle school teacher in German/English, and has worked as a teacher for 16 years. She is an ICF certified coach and has several certifications in group training, along with many years of experience as an instructor.
