It’s hard to believe that almost five months have passed since I first arrived in Sweden and began my studies at Chalmers. As the cliché goes, time flies when you’re having fun and Sweden has been a whirlwind of incredible experiences. Coming from a small town in Tennessee and having traveled very little, Gothenburg feels like a whole new world. There is never a dull moment here. Sweden, and Chalmers in particular, has exceeded all of my expectations so far. I’ve quickly developed friendships with many other students from around the world, as Chalmers makes it easy to interact with your peers. Everyone I’ve encountered so far has been extremely helpful, especially my professors. I can confidently say that applying to and accepting the US Friends of Chalmers scholarship was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I look forward to seeing what the next year has to offer.
Thanks for giving me this opportunity and Happy Holidays!
