                             My teacher and my classmates give me positive energy and make me think deeply
                         about everything. Through my program, I volunteer with two San Diego organizations:
                        ActivCare and the Ocean Discovery Institute. Volunteering changed my thoughts about
                             San Diego because I saw how much the people here take care of each other. I have
                          met new people of different ages and learned many things from them, like how to be
                        passionate and happy. Through my volunteer work, I practice English more than before
                              and sometimes the local people correct my language. I enjoy speaking with them.

                   My time in San Diego has been one of the best years of my life. I would say that the reason
                 for this is not that the experience lived up to my expectations, but rather that the experience
                was so different from my expectations — and I mean that in a good way. One experience that I
              think illustrates my point perfectly was having lunch at the Faculty Club with my professor and
              three other students in my class. I could never have imagined being in such a small and friendly
              learning environment, let alone getting to eat at one of the most prestigious places on campus!
             Since I specialize in bionanotechnology, I have taken different Biology classes. One specific class
                  I took was Foundations of Bioinformatics, which was by far the best class I have ever taken.

                 After completing the Business Essentials certificate, I plan to apply for OPT. I would like to practice
          everything I have learned from this year at UC San Diego Extension International Programs. I would also

          I will return to Sweden and choose my major, which I think will be Human Resources. When I finish with
            my studies here and in Sweden, I will start looking for jobs in HR. With this certificate and with all the
