Hi everyone and welcome to my first post about my scholarship year!

The new year and the new decade kicked off quickly. I look forward to this year’s events with joy, interest and excitement. Thanks to the scholarship partners, I am sure my scholarship year will be great! Thank you, partners, for your support!

In mid-January, I started planning my upcoming scholarship year and related internships with Corinne Åsbacka, Project Coordinator at Folkhälsan. At the end of January, I was also contacted by Sophie Lu-Axelsson of Swedish Care International. With Sophie, we shared our plans about continuing the scholarship year. These plans are coming together so far.

In March, I will have the honor of visiting the Swedish Embassy in Helsinki, where I will present my idea to a distinguished audience – in Swedish! In the same month, I will also attend the “Nurse Days” conference with the Finnish Nurse’s Association. You will find me there on both the 25th and the 26th.

In May, I will have the opportunity to share my idea (this time in English) at the Queen Silvia Nursing Award Grand Ceremony in Stockholm, where I will meet Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden. This is also where I will hear from the other international scholars about their great ideas. In June, there is a training session as a guest at Hugo och Maria Winbergs Stiftelsen.

I look forward to seeing what the rest of the year will bring!

Wishing you a wonderful spring,

Janina
