Hi everyone! I am Ebba Carlsson, 22 years old from Sweden, Stockholm. Currently, I am a student at New Paltz at the IIB program for one semester. After this semester I will go back to Sweden in Lund to finish my Bachelor in strategic communication, targeting digital media. I am very passionate about the subject and have realized how much power there is in communication and how much it can change. Last year, as a supplement to my studies, I worked for a non-profit organization on campus called Gothenburg Nation. My role during my year at the “Nation” was managing PR & Marketing, which involves responsibility for all digital platforms and social media. Soooo much fun!
I have a passion for travel and love meeting new people and see new places I have never seen before. Besides traveling, I love to workout and I spend most of the time with friends and family. I have always had a great mind for sports and have done everything from football, gymnastics, horse jumping and basketball. I ended up on the basketball court but sadly I had to quit in high school because of knee injuries and several operations. But I am still happy, (almost) always do everything with a smile on my face!
During this exchange I hope that I will combine my dream of becoming a communicator with my passion for meeting new people. By surrounding myself with diverse groups of people, which are as driven and passionate as me, I can embrace the challenges cut out for me and succeed with my studies. I’m so excited for this semester, lets do this!
