It’s been a whole twelve months since I wrote about my first week at INSEAD. It turned out that a journal is a promise impossible to keep. :) I just landed in Stockholm, a city I had never visited before I decided to move here. The last twelve months were truly a whirlwind journey from Germany to France and then to Sweden.

The Career Development support office helped me understand how my profile would best match my future career, really getting to understand my personality and interests.
