2013-04-29 Welcome back!
It has been a while since I updated my webpage....
It is March in Sweden, snow still covers the ground.
   It is peaceful here. A place filled with serenity, as one of the masterstudents in Global Journalism expressed it. Many come from conflict-thorn countries to study here in my hometown.
   Surrounded by serenity, I have now written a third part about Afghanistan to complete my book in English...
2010-03-04 WELCOME!

Kära Nina. Hemsidan är jättebra. Dock tycker jag att du kan "skryta" lite mer om vad du åstadkommer i ditt arbete ochom den fantstiska humanitära insaten du gör.Du ger röst åt de som normalt inte hörs, det är så otroligt fint och osjälviskt.

Vilken fin sida. Kostar det mycket att få till en sida lik den här? Har hört att Wold Press ska vara kostnadsfritt men den här var snygg...som du :-) Kram /Sven

Nina Hjelmgren

Journalist, author, lecturer, moderator, photographer.

Enjoys a rich social life in Sweden, California and Afghanistan.

Now lives in Kalmar, Sweden. Works for Fojo, a Media Institute, creating courses and seminars for professional journalists.

Owns a horse named Pitou and ride more or less daily..

Have travelled to places like Afghanistanand other places in Central Asia, West Sahara and California, USA.

Lived in South Pasadena outside Los Angeles 1989 -1994, reported in Swedish media about most everything including pollution, earth quakes, piece demonstrations and Hollywood. Was a columnist writing about shared intimacies in houses not sound-proof, Mustang rides in the Sierras and presidential conventions. .

Travelled to Afghanistan for the first time in March 1996, long before 9/11.

Continues to lecture on Afghanistan.



Careful planning is essential for a successful conference. Being the moderator is serious business.

Time is valuable and everybody signing up for a conference must be able to expect something more than the average. The goal is that the participants leave stimulated and committed with new thoughts and ideas to contemplate further upon.


CISCO VISION was established in 1998 to publish books about Afghanistan.
The company has since then developed into journalistic areas and other social and cultural assignments.
CISCO VISION builds bridges between people and ideas.
