My name is Yrsa Krogh. I’m 51 years old and I live in Billund.

What do you do for a living?

I work in Lego’s production department.

What does globalization mean to you?

Globalization is a good thing. It means people can visit different countries and get to know different people and their cultures.

I think Lego plays a major role because we have branches in different countries too.

How do you spend your leisure time?

I like going fishing. And I like to dance and go on bike rides.

What worries you?

I get worried when I hear so much about terrorism and about people who do bad things to children.

Which country would you like to visit?

I’d like to have a vacation in Greece. I’ve never been there; I’d like to see it.

What makes you happy?

I’m always happy to see my grandchild.
