To help others is very important to Ullrika, important to a degree so that she learned a lot about herself and her body and brain a few years back. This experience has given the encouragement to provide the possibilities for others to choose a healthy and enjoyable journey. The way of structuring trainings is one of many learnings Ullrika gained as a JCI member since 2008.
