IT’S STUDENT STORIES
I was born and raised in Stockholm and lived there almost my entire life. I grew up with a Swedish mom and American dad so you can say I grew up with one foot in each country. I went to college in America and after I came back I started working right away. Even though I enjoyed my job and my life I always felt like something was missing. A couple of years ago I started looking for improv and acting classes in Stockholm. I grew up surrounded my humor and always wanted to try comedy and acting. It’s been a dream of mine since I can remember, but I was always too scared to try. Read the rest of Jennifer’s story here!

I remember I over and over promised my Mum that I would never leave her side, that I would never marry so that I would always be with her. Oh boy! Read the rest of Sergio’s story here!

As I grew older I started trying out different things, from dancing to singing, from playing the piano to becoming a yoga instructor. All of it was very giving but it wasn’t enough. That had me thinking about what I found most challenging, and scary. And the answer was clear, acting. Read the rest of Hlín’s story here!
