Once upon a time, a long time ago, I was awarded a scholarship to study abroad. I went to Springfield, Ohio, stayed for three years and came back a changed woman. Going to college changed so much. The atmosphere was so forgiving and inclusive. I learned a foreign language and was the first foreigner many of my fellow students had ever met. The American experience made me less shy, more extrovert and more focused on the many joys of just living. I loved it.
Perhaps you'll love Stockholm too. If you're an American looking for a master's education, you have the chance to win a full tuition waiver here.
Ps. JA! Det är Jenny Strömstedt.
