Oh hello you beautiful person!

It is great to meet you! I am Jordan, a second year Master’s student studying Peace and Conflict Studies at Uppsala University from the United States.

I came to Sweden excited to not only to study but to learn more about this beautiful country. I actually found the Study in Sweden instagram account while I was preparing to move to this country and found the content so helpful. I was especially interested in the personal accounts of personal day-to-day living. Where would I shop? What was student housing like? How would the winter be? You can find answers to all of those questions on our Instagram and Blog.

I am currently deep in my thesis, but when I need to unwind I enjoy taking sun baths while I enjoy an afternoon fika (like the Swedes do), eating all the food and binge watching trash tv. I am also deeply devout to astrology. I am a Sagittarius if you did not already know haha

I enjoy writing about fun, cultural things like being queer in Sweden or dating in Sweden, among many other things. I hope you find my content useful, and if you have any questions or want to connect you can email me or reach out during my Instagram takeovers.

xoxo,

jordan
