A bit about me…

Hej! My name is Helen Ström, and I am a senior at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. I grew up in Minneapolis, and while my college is only 40 minutes from my childhood home, I have always loved to travel.

At St. Olaf, I study English, Education, Management, and Race and Ethnic Studies. Basically, I am interested in many things and I couldn’t commit to just one area of focus. When I was deciding on a college one of the biggest factors in choosing St. Olaf was the study abroad programs they offered.

Now, I find myself in Stockholm, Sweden and I could not be happier! I am so excited for the next several months and can’t wait to experience all that will come.

You’re welcome to connect with me on my social media accounts below or by email at helencstrom@gmail.com.

A bit about me in Sweden…

While I am in Sweden, I will be living in Stockholm in a living and learning community focussed on the outdoors.

My core course over these next few months will be Positive Psychology. The other classes I will be taking are: Swedish Language, History of Sweden in Sweden and the World, Scandinavian Crime Fiction, and Storytelling: How Narrative Works.

As I’m sure you can tell, I am very excited to learn more about life in Sweden, the people, their history and anything else that comes my way!
