Last month, I was contacted by Sarah Brown, a student from University of Minnesota who asked me if I’d be interested in sharing my experience about writing in Sweden, especially writing for The Newbie Guide to Sweden. It was for her class project and as someone who was once a journalism student as well, I understand how it feels to be able to contact a source for an interview, so I said yes. She sent me her article the other day and I think it’s a good work with a nice balance of primary and secondary sources. No wonder she got 100% for this work.
By the way, there’s actually a funny story behind this “encounter”. I’ve been watching Fargo TV series lately, and one of the settings for the story is in Duluth, where University of Minnesota is located. So when I first read her email signature:
“University of Minnesota Duluth| 2023
College of Liberal Arts”
I felt like it was an amusing coincidence or maybe a sign that I should visit the place one day 😀
Anyway, I decided to share her work here for archival purposes, after having her consent of course. Sarah Brown has the full right of the article so any question and acknowledgment regarding the article should be addressed to the author. Happy reading! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do 🙂
