Greta Tonberg is one of the most prominent environmental activists, well-known figures almost all over the globe. Recently, her mother talked about Greta’s difficult childhood and the problems she had with him. Greta’s mother says she had reached a point where she could not even eat. Join us to explore the story of this controversial teenager.
Greta’s mother, Malena Ernman, says that before her daughter became an environmental activist, she was a quiet child struggling with some form of autism. Ms. Arnman also states that her daughter was obsessed. He explains:
He was slowly sinking into a terrifying darkness. He stopped playing the piano. You were not laughing anymore. He did not talk or eat.
Hermann, who is his favorite singer in Sweden, and his wife Svante Thunberg could barely cope with their little girl’s silence and not eating. He explains that Greta eats nothing but a small amount of rice, avocado and gnocchi. He lost more than 10 kilograms in two months and was shortly after being hospitalized.
Ernman explains that when Greta returned to school, she was harassed and the school did not pay much attention to this issue. According to Ms. Ernman’s memoirs published in her book, Greta’s school knew the problem from her and had no sympathy for her family. However, after Greta regained weight, her psychiatrist reported that young Greta was suffering from some form of autism and severe obsessive-compulsive disorder.
With all the troubles that Greta Tonberg had, she was able to transform herself into a self-made environmental activist. Greta saw a video of a plastic-filled island in Genoa, which changed her life. The next day, Rose marched with a placard in front of the Swedish Prime Minister’s door, taking her school friends with her to start a large march.
It was not long before he was joined by other environmental activists, and his movements gradually increased until he became the current Greta Tonberg. The man who shouts at the elders at the United Nations, walks half a million people in Madrid and spends millions of dollars to go from one side of the ocean to the other, shouting for the environment and polluting gases.
