Tine “Outdoor Buff” Jensen is a 29-year-old an avid skier and outdoor enthusiast living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Who are you & how did you get started?
My name is Tine Ewé Jensen, I’m 29 years old and living in Copenhagen. I'm in love with the mountains and the ocean, so any combination of the two is my happy place. I love everything to do with the outdoors, but I'm happiest strapped into my skis going down the mountain. I started Jenter på Eventyr two years ago on a plane on my way to France. I was feeling a bit lonely in all my hobbies and wanted to create a platform where I could meet other like-minded outdoorsy girls. It started as a simple Instagram account, but it grew pretty quickly and I realized how many people actually identify with the concept of "Jenter på eventyr" (Girls on Adventure). Since then, I've just tried to go with the flow, grow and shape the community any time there was a new possibility.
What are your achievements?
I've created a community that celebrates females in the outdoors. I have connected with 17 ambassadors, reached over 6,500 instagram followers, and built a global network of outdoor enthusiasts who identify with "Jenter på Eventyr". The biggest personal achievement for me is to have found so many other people who share the same passion for the outdoors. People just like me who have the same fears of not being good enough or feeling ashamed of failing, especially in a male dominated environment.
What is your community?
Jenter på Eventyr is a community for outdoor enthusiastic girls and women. We believe that when you are part of a community, there is room to fail, learn and grow with the support of other women. For us, it’s about all about the movement, our passion for adventure, and our love of nature. All wrapped up in a whole lot of Girl Power.
What is the noise you are trying to break through and what are you working on now?
We want to break through the noise of not being good enough, being afraid of making mistakes and losing face. We want to salute the mistakes we make, even encourage them, because that's how we learn and how we grow. Instead of competing with each other, we cheer each other on and help each other to get better.
We are currently trying to build out the community so that more people can join. All of our ambassadors are meeting at Bornholm from the 2nd to 5th of July for a small “Jente Festival”, where we'll do yoga, stand up paddling, mountain biking and a lot of chill out sessions at our campsite. We will also be hosting a surf & yoga trip in August together with the sustainable Danish travel company Den Grønne Rejse.
What is your place in the SOUNDBOKS universe & how are you empowered by SOUNDBOKS?
Music and the outdoors exist in perfect symbiosis. They both bring people’s minds and hearts together, and music is the perfect foundation for encouraging teamwork. And both things are a "language" that we can all understand. At Jenter på Eventyr we want to be the connection between the hardcore hiker and the insecure girls who has never really been in the outdoors and I believe that music is the perfect glue for this. Just like SOUNDBOKS, Jenter på Eventyr wants to bring people together in the outdoors “anywhere and at any time”. Nothing beats an outdoor coffee break on your SUP board with a SOUNDBOKS to help set the perfect atmosphere. A SOUNDBOKS can be the perfect motivator to help you push a little further and a little harder. We are super excited to be able to bring our SOUNDBOKS along on all of our adventures.
