8 Questions with Lotta Jörgensen

Lotta Jörgensen is a food writer and the creative director of Fool Magazine.


Which talent would you most like to have?

I would like to be able to look a person in the eyes and by pure magic speak the same language as him or her. My mother tongue is Swedish, and my English is decent. I wish I spoke Spanish, Mandarin, French and Japanese it is always frustrating to not be able to speak to people. In my world communication is gold.


What is your most treasured possession?

Hmm, I’m almost ashamed to admit – but it’s my smartphone. What would I do without it?


What is your idea of perfect happiness?

I’m not striving for perfect happiness it somehow to me equals boredom, this is mostly because I don’t believe in perfection, but I do believe in happiness.


What is your motto?

It’s never too late.


How would you like to die?

Please let me leave life when it is finished, not before nor after.


If you were to die and come back as a person or thing, what would it be?

Barack Obama and then I would run for president today.


What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

Unnecessary honesty. It can be harsh and not always worth it.


What is your current state of mind?

I’m at our office looking out of the window overlooking a beautiful old cemetery. Trees are washed in the autumn and the leaves multi-coloured. But I’m actually worried. Worried about the current state and the future of our planet. With climate change, the current pandemic, the rapid population growth, and leaders in the shape of clowns I unfortunately know my worries are well grounded.
