What is your connection to SSES, and how has it influenced or affected your journey?
I was fortunate enough to come into contact with SSES from an early stage of my master’s degree. Through them I was able to get in touch and make friends with other students of different backgrounds and disciplines who have not only influenced my private but also professional life.
Without SSES I would probably not have met the great friends that I have at Karolinska who were able to refer me to the right person to collaborate with. Therefore I am incredibly grateful for all the efforts that are made to connect all the member schools for an exchange of skills I later involved myself as a student ambassador for Konstfack to help with this mission.
What is the biggest opportunity for you right now?
My biggest opportunity right now is that it was possible for me to develop my project to an unusual degree due to the help of the SSES Validation program. My microbiological lamps are defined to a degree that I can present them as finished products. Exhibiting them out in the world to be seen and experienced has been amazing. The comments and reactions have been overwhelmingly positive. Therefore I am more eager than ever to continue with this work and invite more people to experience my vision.
The Konstfack Degree Exhibition is open from May 17-28th: Mon-Fri 12–7 pm, Sat-Sun 12–4 pm
