Whale hello there!

Greetings to you all wherever you are reading from! Martyna is writing here – your new digital ambassador in Sweden!

Hopefully, you are as thrilled as I am to start this journey together with my colleagues Lorenzo and Raygo, and I can not wait to tell you all about life in Sweden and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology!

I come from a capital of a small country – Lithuania, located by the Baltic sea. Years ago, I flew to London, United Kingdom, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Architecture.

Later brexit happened and then corona appeared, so I decided to try Sweden when I heard about their lifestyle and high quality of education. But mostly, the cost of being a student is much cheaper here than in London…Have I already mentioned brexit…?

Before my arrival here, I knew nothing about the country and its culture and had no friends or relatives living here. It was a fresh start for me in a new city again. But hey, thumbs up! Once I arrived, I tried to participate in many events, meet loads of people and get to know the area. Events at KTH, such as buddy groups and international dinners, were perfect for immersing myself in student life! Not going to lie: these were the craziest first weeks in Stockholm…

At the moment, I am enrolled in my second year (and last year!) of the master’s programme in Architecture. The previous year was an amazing experience for me, and it is still continuing! I have joined a badminton club here, found a new passion for biking, and could you guess my interest in photography? On top of that, I started learning Swedish since I fell in love with the city, the people, the architecture and, of course, the nature…

Lovely to meet you all, and please do not hesitate to contact me! I would be more than happy to talk to you!
