Sweden is a country full of opportunities for me and I would love to get to know its culture and traditions and see what it means to live there. I fell in love with Sweden’s nature and would like to explore it on my own, through my own eyes. Lately, I’ve been thinking a little about moving there in the future, so I take this as a great opportunity to get to know how it feels like to live in the country. I also love Swedish and perhaps would like to learn the language, I have learnt some sentences and words already, but I am a self-learner and I do not think I would be able to hold a conversation with someone yet. The reason I want to study in Sweden is that I want to see the differences between the school systems and simply learn something new. I am certain the program would offer me to meet with a lot of new people, find new friends, and create international friendships that might last forever, which is awesome. It is clear it will give me more than I can imagine yet, make me a completely different person, and give me memories that last forever. Whatever stays ahead, I want to explore it and set out on this amazing adventure with you."

My fantasy has almost no limits; I love writing stories and poetry and I'm the kind of a person who comes up with crazy and funny ideas. I am responsible, I am always on time and I try to get the best out of my work. I love listening to music and reading books, because both inspire me a lot, and I also like hiking, cycling and going out with friends. I try to be positive about every situation, learn from my own mistakes and don't regret things that did not work out in the past and instead take them as a lesson and opportunity to become a better person."

Varför vill Aino till Sverige?
"Sweden may sound like an odd choice to a Finn, but to me personally it makes so much sense. My English skills are good. I would manage in an English speaking country by myself, but my Swedish is not that good. I like the Swedish language and the way it sounds. It would open many doors for me to study abroad. One of Finlands official languages is Swedish which means that some of the schools are in Swedish. If I would know Swedish better I could study in Finland in a university where the language is Swedish or start an adventure in a Swedish university. My next year’s adventure in Sweden would be perfect for me for a soft landing for living abroad. Also the Swedish culture is a bit of a mystery for me."

En hälsning från Aino:
"Hi! I'm Aino and I am sixteen years old. I like animals and sports. During winter I spend most of my time outdoors either skiing in Levi Lapland or chilling with my friends. I am a happy and social person who likes to chat with people and make new friends. I get along with people very well due to my great social skills. At school I am ready to work hard. My open personality helps me getting to know people easily."

"I'm very excited to come to Sweden and can't wait to learn about the Swedish culture and way of living. I love learning new things and I hope I can get many life long memories from this exchange. My Swedish language skills aren't yet that good but I would like to use the language as much as possible when I come to Sweden. The best way to learn the language is to just use it all the time and translate some unknown words to use them in the future. I have been studying Swedish from fifth grade and I am very motivated in learning it more. In Finland, it is a very useful language and that's the main reason I want to go exchange to Sweden. The school system in Finland is quite similar to the Swedish system. It makes changing schools a little less scary. I am always down to trying new things and that is why I want to have this experience of exchanging already at this young age."

En hälsning från Hertta:
"I'm quite active and I love moving around. After school I do my homework and then do something fun. Even a walk around the neighborhood is very refreshing and calming for me. The nature in Sweden is almost the same as here in Finland so it's a nice thing that I am used to. I'm very excited for the exchange year in Sweden and can't wait to experience new things and make unforgettable memories!"

Varför vill Olive åka till Sverige?
"I think it is a great opportunity to learn a new language, meet new people, live in new weather, a new city and exchange different cultures.I have heard that Sweden is one of the places that has Northern lights. I really want to see it with my own eyes. Moreover, I want to travel to the north of Sweden because of the ice and snow. I would like to be able to speak Swedish too, it is a beautiful language."
