“과학자들은 사람이 말하는 언어가 사람의 마음을 형성한다고 말하는데. 그것이 사실이라고 생각합니다. 덴마크어는 제가 처음 배운 언어이기 때문에. 제 마음속으로 덴마크인이라고 생각합니다”
[Scientists say that the language a person speaks forms a person’s mind. I think that is true. Because danish was my primary language, I regard myself as danish even though I do not “look” danish]
