Mathilda Jansson, SWY31

What do you like the most about SWY?

Anna Rydborg, GLDP1 SWY26

Linnea Johansson, SWY31

What do you like the most about SWY?
– I love that SWY gives people the opportunity to explore in a new way. It’s no longer only about  scenic views, but about the ideas, culture and minds of people from other countries.

Alexander Annerberg, SWY31
TREASURER

What do you like the most about SWY?
– What made SWY so amazing to me was the absolute bombardment of impressions each day, exotic cultures, passionate people and unforgettable experiences. I firmly believe I grew as a person on SWY and I am often grateful for having taken part in such a magical journey with the rest of SWY31.

Sofia Jagbrant, GLDP1 SWY26
MEMBER

What do you like the most about SWY?
– The best thing about SWY is that it’s an incredible network with amazing individuals from so many different countries! I also like how the network supports so many types of grass root initiatives, something I also have experience with as an organiser collecting money for winter clothing for Syrian refugees.

Nava Navarajacumaran, SWY22
MEMBER

What do you like the most about SWY?
– What I like about SWY is the way the entire agenda is well-organized, even during abnormal situations. I also liked the changing of roommates each month because it gives the complete experience of co-living beyond cultures and lifestyles.

Mattis Bygdén, SWY31
MEMBER

What do you like the most about SWY?
– My favourite thing about SWY is how it doesn’t end when you get off in Yokohama, instead you get to keep having new experiences and meeting people from all around the world through this awesome global network!

Martina Freiholtz, SWY31
SUBSTITUTE

What do you like the most about SWY?
– I love how SWY connects people from very different backgrounds and cultures, and the way the program celebrates those differences while at the same time allowing us to discover how much we have in common. Elimination of the “them”, creation of a stronger “us”.

Victor Åstrand, SWY31
SUBSTITUTE

What do you like the most about SWY?
– The best thing about SWY is that you not only get to create a global circle of connections, but you also make real friends from all corners of the world!
