I m not the type of guy who sits in his apartment all day doing nothing. List which musical instruments you play or have played: I played a little bit of piano in primary school, but nothing special.

What is your marital status? Single. Do you have any children? No. Which types of sport do you play or have played? I ve played soccer for around 15 years, out of which 4-5 years was in the best and second-best youth league in Denmark. Which other types of sports are you interested in?

The thing I like most about Denmark, is that you can talk to anyone. If you are just being a little polite, almost everyone is willing to open a conversation and maybe even start a smaller friendship.
3 Q&A with DESMOND - continued DESMOND s dreams, favourites and experiences Who are your idols/heroes/heroines? My biggest idol must be Gianluca Vacchi, an Italian man in his 50s. He has such a positive view on life, and he has what seems to be the perfect life. He enjoys the little moments, like putting on a dance-friendly tune and just dance like nobody is watching. What are your goals in life? My goal in life is to become an expert in robot technology, which gives a very good salary, so that my future family and I don t have to worry about money. I would be the happiest man ever, if I could afford to take my future wife and kids on vacations a couple of times a year. 1 week skiing, 1 week in the south, and 1 week in some of Europe s big cities. What were your childhood dreams? Of course, I must say that my biggest dream was to become a professional soccer player, because I played in the two best youth leagues. I really thought I could become something, but sadly nothing ever really happened. Which values do you rank the highest? Happiness, definitely. Which childhood experience made the biggest impression on you? My mom and dad had their first big sailboat when I was 2 years old. When I was about 6 years old, we went on a trip for 3 weeks, sailing along the coasts of Denmark and went from harbour to harbour. That was a really great experience because we didn t plan anything, we just sailed wherever wanted. Most dangerous: When I went to Greece for the first time I was about 8 years old, and we went on a boat trip to some caves in the area. We had to swim 200 meters on almost open sea to get to the cave, and my dad, my uncle and I were swimming to the cave, but my dad and I didn t have the physical condition to do it, so my uncle had to carry me from the cave to the ship, and afterwards he carried my dad on his back. If it wasn t for my uncle s good stamina, I don t know what we should have done. Greatest sorrow: At my grandfather s funeral, they played this song by the Danish musician Kim Larsen. Everything was so beautiful and I just couldn t believe I wasn t going to see him anymore. What is your favourite colour? Red. What is your favourite animal? Sloth. What is your favourite kind of food? Steak. What is your favourite kind of music? Rap or house music. What is your favourite kind of car? Audi A5 Sports back. What is your favourite kind of pet? Dog - a pug. Which was your greatest experience or moment? My trip to China. Happiest: Seeing my grandfather get out of the hospital after being hit by a blood clot. He s 83 and was very healthy and active, so it was very sudden. Funniest: Being sent to the principal s office with my best friend for laughing in class, and when we told the joke to the principal he started crying of laughter to, and went to class with us and told our teacher to get a sense of humour. Scariest: I went on a midnight hike with two of my best friends and we walked down into some bunkers from WWII, and when we finally had the courage to enter the bunker, the door slammed behind us and we all screamed and panicked. Proudest: When we went to Spain for a soccer cup, and brought home the gold trophy for the 3rd year in a row. What is your favourite time of year? Winter. What is your favourite book and/or author? Harry Potter and the deathly hallows. What is your favourite movie and/or director? Moonlight.
