"There's no such thing as home."

Author Bio

Sociology student at the London School of Economics, with an international background. Growing up in Malmo, Sweden, I always wanted to study in England, so here I am! Academic interests range from sociology of family and social class to the social impact of the Internet. When I’m not doing readings or writing essays, I dedicate most of my time to my sharing my passion, kitesurfing. I’m the president of the LSE SU Kitesurf and Wakeboard Club, and I have been kitesurfing for five years now. I also spend a considerable amount of time travelling, cooking and going to gigs. As much as I adore London, I also spend a lot of time in Dubai, France, and Sweden, since my family is a bit all over the place. Where I’m going to end up after uni remains a mystery!

I’ve realised it might be…
