Yo Soy Yanjita, che

Yanjaa Wintersoul is a 23-year-old award-winning memory athlete from Mongolia who is currently the #1 highest-ranked Female Memory Champion of the World. Within her first year of memory training she got the gold medal at the World Memory Championships for remembering names and faces, also winning the World Memory Championship team medal with Sweden. The following year she got the world record for the most names and faces ever remembered (187 international names in 15 minutes) and was the eighth person in history to achieve an International Grandmaster of Memory (which includes memorizing more than 1000 random digits in under an hour) at her second World Memory Championships.


Shortly after, she was invited to be one of the 200 global Leaders of Tomorrow at the St. Gallen Symposium in Switzerland for outstanding success in memory sports at such a young age and commitment in fighting against discrimination and for the initiative and courage to make a difference, as well as winning the annual Mongolian Youth Award for excellency in inspiring youth education through language learning and memory training.


Growing up in Stockholm, Mongolia and Tokyo and finishing high school in Kenya – she’s always had a growing passion for global compassion, equality and education.


With a bachelor in economics from Stockholm University and a bachelor in art history from Uppsala University, she hopes to contribute to the further adventure and development of the human race in the most fun and collaborative ways possible. Whether that’s in educational entertainment or research in theoretical physics, only time will tell. One thing is for sure, nothing would’ve ever been possible without her loving mother who instilled in her the belief that with enough curiosity and self-compassion, we are given the tools needed to pursue what’s good in the world.

Because my old intro is adorable:

Hello. I’m Yanjaa. I like funny people and books. I enjoy long romantic walks to the gym listening to Japanese folk rock. I try my best to not be a hipster, but reading what I’ve written so far I’m failing miserably.

Oh well.

Sometimes I do really interesting stuff like ride elephants and get elephant massages, sky-dive in my bikini (you gotta air that taco out), dance ‘til I can’t feel my feet or ride tiny horses. And sometimes I do really mundane things like play videogames like The Binding of Isaac, make desserts, listen to music while fantasizing about eating steaks and make soft-core music. This site is a mix of both.

And sometimes when I realize I need to eat something and that playing video games all day won’t pay my food costs (yet…) I also work with languages, comedy, dis here blehg, photography and other random projects.

 Random stuff from my resumé of random things I’ve done:


Jag är Yanjaa. En 18-årig underbar mongolisk tjej som reser och blabla. Jag tycker om språk, Barcelona och typ… Coca-Cola.

Ololol jag är för trött för att sitta och redigera den här sidan – ställ frågor istället så att jag vet vad jag ska berätta och sånt.

Du får en bättre bild av mig om du förstår vilka prestationer och erfarenheter som jag omhuldar mest:
