Hola! Hej! Hello!

My name is Maria, I am 23 years old, and I am a new Digital Ambassador for the Instagram team of Study in Sweden! I am so excited about starting this new adventure and getting to share it with you all! 

I am from Barcelona, where I got my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and I am currently settled in Stockholm, to pursue a master’s degree in Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology at Stockholm University (SU). 

I came to Sweden for the first time for an Erasmus in Umeå, the first semester of 2022, and I fell in love with the country immediately. I was so grateful that I applied for the master’s degree then and I am even more grateful now that I am back here. Sweden aligns with all my personal values; I could not be anywhere else where I felt more understood and visible than here. 

A little about me, besides being a bit of a scientific nerd, I love to watch TV shows (do not hesitate to share any recommendations with me!), I truly enjoy discovering new fika spots, catching sunset in every possible viewpoint. Last but not least, I can never say no to a boardgames night and having a nice dinner after.I hope you are thrilled to join me in discovering the Swedish way and make winter feel warmer! Let’s go!
