The time has come for myself, Valerie and Claire to finish up, we’ve really enjoyed writing blogs for you! I’m very grateful that I got this chance to contribute to the blog and to get the chance to work with such a wonderful blogging team. I’m looking forward to reading posts from new bloggers in the next few weeks!

Although it feels like two years was a very short time, I am delighted that I got to experience life in Sweden. My time at KTH was so valuable to me both personally and professionally. It opened my eyes to a plethora of new ideas, methods of working and ways of thinking. 

Stockholm was the best place to study an architecture masters. The atmosphere of openness and excitement at the school made it the perfect place to imagine and create. That atmosphere is what I’ll miss most. The tutors that are open and accepting of any ideas you want to explore and the students that are free enough to think creatively and motivated enough to pull off fantastic work. 

I met so many funny, intelligent, talented friends in Stockholm and although I am sad to leave them, I’m excited at the idea of catching up with them someday and sharing good times again.

For now, I’ve said my goodbyes to Sweden and have started a position as a graduate architect, designing new pieces of Dublin City. My time at KTH has encouraged me to keep my horizons wide though. I’ve really enjoyed the international perspective in the school and I’m looking forward to keeping this in the years to come. Who knows? Maybe one day I’ll be back!

Thanks for following along!
