MY SHOOTING JOURNEY
My Shooting Journey
In 2014, I moved to Sweden from Spain. I had a great future ahead of me as a lawyer and I loved spending my weekends close to my family and friends in Madrid, but due to the economical crisis in 2008, I left everything I had in Spain, and moved to Stockholm with my husband. I didn't speak Swedish, I had no friends, no job, and I couldn't work as a lawyer, so I had to start over from scratch, but I was ready for the challenge:
As I couldn't work as a lawyer, I worked as a Project Manager in a Market Research Company, where I learnt strategies to launch new products into new markets. Then I got recruited as a Media & Sales Manager for an acknowledged global business magazine. After breaking the company's sales record, I got promoted to Communications Director for EMEA, and I spent 4 years of my life talking to CEOs and Presidents of multi-billion companies, so my brain and business thinking has been moulded by the best business individuals in the world. I lived in London and Singapore and spent a lot of time working with CEOs who loved golf and tennis, and others liked to hunt, so I started getting interested in shooting thanks to some of my clients.
In 2018 I met my shooting instructor Staffan Schullström, former Swedish Olympic Trap champion and gun expert, who introduced me and my husband to the world of professional clay pigeon shooting. He has taught me everything: how to mount, aim, shoot– and I won my first 2 competitions after 6 months of training: The Noppe Cup 2019 and the Klubbmästerskap 2019 (both in the ladies category).
I am not a professional shooter yet, but the beauty of My Shooting Journey relies on building a Global Shooting Community where by sharing my experiences I am hoping to inspire others to start shooting. Due to the professional and Olympic shooters that I train with, I also help experienced shooters with the professional advice I get from these professionals.
One of my goals is to "convert" people who are against hunting into clay shooters, it is a good first step, so during my first 6 months into shooting, I have introduced more than 20 "newbies" into this great sport, and they loved it. The majority hated guns, but I took the time to talk about safety and now they all have a huge respect for the shooting community. They all continue shooting, and some of them are preparing for their first clay shooting competition in 2020, so I am extremely proud of them.
Due to my broad network within the Outdoor Industry, combined with my expertise in the Media Sector, I also help companies showcase their brands and services using my organically grown platform, which consists of more than 450,000 impressions per week, from people that are genuinely interested in outdoor activities, shooting and fieldsports in general.
