Hi! My name is Gabriel and I am a student at the university of Gothenburg, currently studying my Msc (masters degree) in political science. I come from a home with a lot of political background. At the age of 15-16, I started to pay attention to the political talks my dad and his friends had at home and I soon began to discuss certain hot topics with them. From that point on I became interested in everyday politics - from small municipality issues to the global economy. Today I am fortunate enough to study at the university researching this matters. During my time at the university I have worked with various jobs. I strongly believe in working besides the studies for two main reasons; 1) you gain a lot of experience meating people outside of school and therefore bonding with other to create a stronger network, and 2) you are keeping yourself motivated and focused on your progress when dealing with two (or more) tasks at once. I have for example work as a barista early on during my bachelor degree and during my master's degree I have for example worked as a debt collector at a private company, as a sales person at Lush and as a site responsible at one of Swedens biggest gyms.
I am also very active in a organisation called Löparakademin which is something I hold very dearly. They operate in targeted areas in Sweden, helping youths stay motivated in life while in the meantime practice running as a learning tool for setting up goals both in life and for the youths own training. Besides this I am currently writing at Upsala Nya Tidning blog site as a political writer along former classmates from Uppsala university. I truly enjoy the experience I get from analyzing politics through this channel.
