I've held various different job titles throughout my career, such as news reporter, writer, speaker and gender-equality expert, but at the core of them all is story-telling. Sometimes I tell stories through books, articles, films or plays that have taken me to places I couldn't even fathom, resulting in various honours and awards. Other times, my story-telling manifests itself in journalism, public speaking and advocacy that earned me the title Woman of the Year 2015 in my native Iceland. I currently live in Stockholm, Sweden. My latest book, South of Forgiveness, co-written with Tom Stranger, and its accompanying TED talk garnered the below responses from critics:
Hats off to Elva and Stranger for a brave journey that might well change lives.
...a book you'll find yourself endlessly discussing with very many people.
...a book written with great empathy and the authors' courage is remarkable.
The Good Men Project:
Remarkable.... can empower even the most vulnerable, near and far.
