Helle-Viv Helle Magnerud likes metal music, is in love with Captain Jack Sparrow and would like to understand her cat at least once. She advocates more public commitment, disability rights and their realisation. What kind of dreams she has and why dolphins and pirates play a role in it, she tells us on REHACARE.com.
Helle-Viv Helle Magnerud: My dad. He taught me how to swear, how to rise again after falling and to smile through tears. Unfortunately, he died due to cancer last summer, but he is still with me and I know he is so proud of me.
You have the chance to become the German Federal Commissioner for the Disabled. What would you do first?
Helle-Viv Helle Magnerud: Make sure that all disabled people in Norway who want personal assistants to live free and independent lifes – get it. It’s a legal right in Norway, but many of our local communities do not understand or do not want to understand the law and therefore a lot of people don’t have the possibility to live their life as they want to.
