Daniel: Thank you Ikenna. I am also glad to be on this platform and to share my experiences with other students and young people that are aspiring to take their careers forward. ASA: Why did you choose Sweden as your study destination, as an international student? And what’s so exciting about studying here? Daniel: For me specifically, I think it goes back to my particular field of study. As you mentioned earlier, I’m doing a master’s program in environmental engineering. And some people might be aware of the fact that Sweden has quite a high international profile, as regards, its environmental initiatives. For example, households in Sweden recycle up to 99% of their waste, and in general, the average Swede is very environmental conscious.So I knew that coming to Sweden to study on this particular program will give me an opportunity, not only to study in class, in lectures but I could also be studying when I am outside class, by meeting everyday people and finding out about the different initiatives that has been taken within the country to ensure that the environment is well taken care of. So that basically is the major reason why I chose to come to Sweden. ASA: Let’s talk about Swedish institute scholarship. How did you get this scholarship? Daniel: The Swedish institute gives scholarships to students from all over the world. And they have a program that runs every year. Application period starts around October every year up to early January. It is advertised nationwide. Of course the visibility of this is much more in countries where there is a Swedish embassy, or cross-cultural relationship between Sweden and that particular country.So in my own country Uganda, Sweden has a lot of collaborations with the public universities in Uganda. There was a Swedish day celebration at my previous university, Makerere University, where they invited the Swedish Ambassador to Uganda. They displayed some of the research funding that Sweden has given to Uganda researchers. And this scholarship program was one of the things they talked about. So I got to know about it.A story ran later in the newspapers and I was linked to the website where you could find more information. I went to this website. That was how I got to know more about the Swedish institute scholarship. ASA: I believe there were a lot of students that applied for this scholarship. And few students were selected. So there has to be something about these students. What exactly would you point out that was the advantage you had towards getting this scholarship? Daniel: Well, I could say they pretty much just liked me… Am kidding. Anyway, After School Africa no
