    Emily's Bio:
    I am a senior majoring in communication and minoring in photography. The College of St. Scholastica has been a great place for me to be throughout my college journey. I am fascinated by the world and am currently studying abroad at Regent's University London in England. I live for the little things and the adventures I stumble upon everyday. In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, listening to and writing music, taking pictures, and exploring.

City of a Difference

There are a load of differences, city to city. I have just returned from a weekend in Stockholm, Sweden. It was brilliant. The city was filled with bold colored buildings, friendly people, intriguing cafes, and excellent sights. I am beginning to appreciate even more deeply the individual culture that exists in our world. While Stockholm had some extraordinary photography opportunities, London still holds my heart. Each city I have spent time in offers a piece of itself that will stick with me forever. In London, I feel like everyone is ready for business, ready to get things done, and ready to dive in to whatever lies ahead. In Stockholm, I felt a sense of easiness, a sense of calm, and a draw for me to come back. I will visit Sweden again someday. I was very moved by the Swedish language and the ability of nearly every citizen to switch back and forth between Swedish and English with ease. I hope and plan to become a Swedish speaker one day. I even bought John Green’s The Fault in our Stars in Swedish to begin perusing the words and vocabulary. In a sense, I see an opportunity to compare my draws to Sweden and England to my roots in Minnesota. There is a special vibe unique to Minnesota, and that will always be a part of me. These cities, all in their own, will never leave my soul to rest.
