As a kid Stella always climbed on everything around and outside the house and her school, up to the point that her teachers forbid her from it since she never seemed to be safely on the ground. When she got older, she put on a pair of climbing shoes and her climbing interest developed into a passion. The first few times she went climbing for real, it seemed obvious that climbing was her calling and she felt like she had found what she was supposed to do with her life. The excitement in her voice when she talks about her best climbing experiences or a route she would really like to do again is unmistakable. She has a true passion for her sport which is inspiring and contagious.
Working in her local climbing gym in Göteborg, Stella loves everyday life and that she gets to work with what she loves. She builds new routes and teaches how to climb for a living, and on top of that she has just started her studies in cognitive science. Besides climbing, she also has a huge interest in music. She sings, plays and is in her local choir.
Despite all her interests, what Stella really values in life is being outdoors. She loves being in nature and in the forest and just BE, a message that we at Houdini are inspired by.
