December 11th

Av Frida Lindh - 11 december 2011 22:15

Today we got in contact with a Norwegian girl; Katarina Østberg. She lives in Oslo and was an exchange student in the United States in 2009 / 2010. Once again, due to the distance, we interviewed her through Skype (God bless technology!). Here come some of the most interesting answers she had to our questions: 


- Can you summarize the whole year in just one sentence? “Oh that’s easy – the best year of my life, without any doubts”.

- How did you develop as a person? “Well, I definitely got more independent. You know, before I relied on my parents for a lot of things, but now I learned to take care of my self and to be responsible. I also learned to face my fears; instead of avoiding them you should confront them, because who knows, maybe it isn’t that scary after all”     

- What was the best part of the year? “My friends! They pretty much made my entire year! I have never felt that connection that I felt with them with my friends in Sweden, we became more like sisters. And we did everything together. I even looked forward to going to school, because I knew they would be there, and that’s something I can guarantee you has never happened before.

- How did your host family treat you? “They were lovely! Already from the first day they made me feel like one in the family and not like a guest. That is really important, to feel like to fit in. They always made me feel comfortable and always offered their help if I was struggling with something. I’m always going to be grateful to them for opening up their home to me”

Today we put together all the statistics. We made three graphs; one is about the most popular countries to go to as an exchange student (the United States), the next one is about the amount of girl compared to boys that choose to be exchange students...

The presentation of the handbook is done. We just wanted a small presentation of what we are hoping to achieve with this handbook; that more students want to experience the life of being an exchange student. We think that a lot of students actually a...

Today we made the front page of our handbook. It was very exciting because now it really feels that we are starting to get somewhere with the actual handbook. We are doing the handbook in a program called “Adobe Indesign CS3” which is a v...

Today we continued with what we were doing last time; trying to find scholarships that are supporting exchange students. We haven’t found as many as we hoped for, but here comes the last ones. “Axel och Sofia Alms stiftelse”; they g...

Back in Sweden! Today we started to look into what different options you have if you want to apply for a scholarship. This wasn’t as easy as we had thought; most of them have some kind of restriction or demand that you don’t achieve throu...
