I realized graduation is actually a really cool thing. I got loads of presents! I might think about graduating every year, if people will always make me happy like this. Just kidding, of course. I think I am done with studying, at least for a while now.

I sad, loads of presents. But you have to have a favorite one. And my favorite one this time came from a really good friend of mine, who decided to surprise me with something every young woman and girl should have – Good night stories for rebel girls! The book is a good alternative to a fairy tales we read to our kids. But it is also good to have in later stages of your life. It consists of 100 stories of woman with different background, professions and life stories. All of them inspiring and moving! They start with once upon a time… And they introduce us to lives of everyday woman, like we are, who just were brave enough to make their dreams come true.

Something you really need in turbulent period of your life. To remind you to be happy and to stay truthful to your dreams will bring you as far as you want it. And that your work will always pay off!

SI diploma ceremony

Posted in: SI, Sweden on 3 June, 2017 by Maja

As I mentioned in my previous posts, the whole period of my studies in Sweden was supported by Swedish Institute (SI). I have been their scholarship holder for almost two years now, and slowly I am moving to the SI alumni group. When I say my studies were supported by them, I don’t only mean financially. I mean they were like another family, a group of people who would help you with anything in any time, with whom you could share your ideas and experiences, the people who were inspiring you and who made all your biggest problems very small.

We were encouraged to take the stand, to engage, to contribute in solving global issues. We were given the possibility to take part in important conferences, seminars, workshops, to ask questions, to organize our own events and inspire even more young people outside of our network. Not to mention that it gave us the opportunity to specialize in the fields we wanted, gain our diplomas and become competitive at job markets all over the world.

It’s been truly two amazing years of my life. In last night’s ceremony that was held in the Golden room of Stockholm City Hall, we had the opportunity to put a crown on these years as SI scholarship holders. We received our diplomas, celebrated together, and marked last night as a beginning of a completely new and challenging SI alumni period.

It has been my privilege to be a part of this amazing community! Thank you!

What after the graduation?

Posted in: Master thesis, SI, Sweden, thesis on 28 May, 2017 by Maja

Well, as I explained in my previous blog, I still haven’t realized I am done with my studies. There is still few things to do before getting the diploma officially, but there is no more days at college, working on my thesis. It will probably hit me that I am done in a few days, because that is how it usually works with me and big events in my life.

However, there is no time for break. I got a job last month in a company I’ve done my internship in last year, as part of my master programme. It feels very good. 🙂

When quickly reflecting now, these past two years at Linköping University were amazing in every sense. I was educating myself, getting to know Sweden and its traditions, I have met amazing friends for life, and I’ve changed a lot. I think for the best. 😉 Of course, this wouldn’t be possible without Swedish Institute and their generous scholarship I’ve been a proud holder of. I am very grateful for this opportunity of my life. Now, off to new victories!

Graduation day 2017

This is my first blog as Msc Maja Bradaric, and one of the last ones, since soon I will no longer be Linköping University student, but alumni. Most of the people ask what’s the feeling to finally be done after months and months of work, but I think I still haven’t realized I am done. I am still processing all the emotions and impressions from the previous week.

On Wednesday, 24th of May 2017, seven students of Ecology and the Environment master programme successfully defended their master projects. It was a day we spent with our teachers, colleagues and families, and it was our opportunity to shine after a year of hard work. We all had 15 minutes for our presentations, plus 5 min more for potential questions from the audience. The event took the whole day, since colleagues from another master program from Biology department, defended their projects as well. During the breaks, we were standing next to our scientific posters, to answer questions and present more of our work. In the end of the day, we had a small unofficial ceremony, where we were handed confirmation letters of our thesis defense.

After the ceremony, we had our own celebration with champagne, in one of the campus parks. It was an amazing day, very well organized, with no stress, very spontaneous and relaxed. I want to thank all our teachers and other University employees for very good organization, and for making it very easy for us to finish our studies. It has been a pleasure to be a student of Linköping University!

Summer

Swedes are well known to act a bit like reptiles. When you live in Sweden for almost two years now, you start to behave similar yourself. I mean, it is understandable. Darkness during the winter, cold and mostly grey spring, and then, there it is – that one day of Swedish summer! And everyone goes crazy. Everyone is out trying to catch first (and maybe last) sun rays. That was my friends and me today. I mean, seriously? Now, when we have our final presentations only few days ahead and we are nervously polishing our final work. Now it’s nice, and plus there is a beer festival at the Campus. We really tested our determination today. We allowed ourselves a little bit longer lunch with ice-cream. And all the students were out also. 😀 Summer is almost here!!!
