Curators of Sweden

Every week, a new person is @sweden. For seven days, she or he tweets about life in Sweden, love or work, sharing opinions and ideas along the way. Then, someone else does the same – but differently. Follow our country through our curators. Welcome to Sweden.

Know someone who might be interested? Nominate a future curator of Sweden.

Hi! I’m Shaima, on Twitter you can find me as @shaima2030. I am a student from Saudi Arabia, and I came to Sweden to pursue my master’s degree and PhD.

I want to be an education consultant. The reason why I chose education to be my profession is that I believe that good education makes good people, and I want to raise the number of good people in this world. I also want to be a voice for those who don’t have one. This week I’ll be talking about my journey of learning Swedish, my life in Stockholm and other amazing stuff.
