Strongest memory from Sweden:

In Kiruna the North of Sweden with plenty of snow

In Kiruna the North of Sweden with plenty of snow

There is a saying, “Stockholm is not a city at all, but a rather large village set in the middle of some forests and lakes.” Yes! I totally agree with and love it. And the fascinating scenery in Stockholm is just what I missed most. Surrounded by waters, the city is stunningly beautiful in the summer evening, which is paralleled by the charm of frozen lakes and snow-fringed skylines in the winter. I love these amazing sights. In October 2012, I returned to Sweden again for one week just to re-visit the beautiful city and the nice local people.In addition, the diversity of culture and the nice local people are also impressive and fantastic to me. In Stockholm, you will find a lot of interesting things during the daily life which have great influence on the culture, economy and politic over the world. Every year, the Nobel Prizes activities will attract worldwide eyes, particularly, in 2012, the Chinese litterateur Mr. MO Yan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Like most Chinese people, I am also very excited. Thanks to Sweden.

Recommendation to new students:
Study hard as well as enjoy Swedish life! The education system in Sweden will offer you lots of practical help to turn your academic success into career gold. When you are trying your best to study, don’t forget to make new friends, learn different foreign culture and language, which will be great helpful in your future life.

Strongest memory from Sweden:
My strongest memory would be the time Stockholm University hosted the Nobel NightCap 2011. I was involved in the preparation for the party as a student volunteer. The dedication and determination shown by student volunteers, both international and Swedish, to ensure the success of the party, left a lasting impression on me.

Make the most of the cultural diversity in Sweden. Sweden attracts many people from different parts of the world. So, have extensive cultural networking/interaction while studying in Sweden. Student activities are a good place to start. Personally, I was able to bridge many cultural gaps and develop a great appreciation and respect for other cultures – which is important in leadership (my personal opinion).
