I'm excited to try an adventure traveling to Sweden, immersing myself in the culture and learning the language, customs, and food. I'm curious about Scandinavian culture specifically because my grandparents are Swedish, and because my family hosted an exchange student from Denmark a couple years ago
I chose to study abroad because I want to experience and explore a different country and culture, and I believe I will be able to learn a lot by going to Sweden.

I really want to learn Swedish and do it well. I took a DNA test and it turns out I'm 25% Swedish! There's a part of me that I was aware of before. The Scandinavian education system is the best in the world, and I want to experience that.
So here’s a little bit of what you can expect from me: I love to cook and to learn new recipes, so I’ll definitely be happy to help do some cooking and expand my recipe repertoire. And you won’t have to worry about me being a picky eater; actually one of the things that drew me to Sweden was all the raw and pickled fish: one of my favorite foods. I’m a huge homebody, and on most evenings I’ll likely be drinking tea or cocoa, reading or watching television. In fact one of my favorite shows to watch right now is Welcome to Sweden! on Netflix! My favorite genre of music is R&B; I just find it so calming to listen to and I love to blast it while I’m getting ready in the morning before school.

Here in San Diego, California the weather stays around 18 to 23 degrees year round. I am excited to experience the cold weather in Sweden. I am very fascinated by the landscape and beautiful nature and scenery in your country. Also, I’m excited to experience life in a new country. To experience the beautiful fall and winter in Sweden and be able to document it through photography will be amazing. It will be exciting to meet new people and learn the language and the culture.
I can’t wait to learn about Sweden and it’s culture while living with your family. It will be an amazing opportunity to study abroad and further my education while staying in Sweden for a semester. Although my family will miss me while I am gone they are happy I have this opportunity to learn and experience new things. Excited to hear from you and to meet you all.
