Overview

I am an ambitious 28-year old Swedish academic with a wide range of different experiences behind me. Apart from a master and bachelor of political science, I have also spent three semesters in France studying the French language and culture. One year of challenging internships conducted at the European Parliament in Brussels and the International Labour Organization in Geneva has enabled me to work in multicultural and multilingual environments where I have been able to put my analytical and communicative skills into good practice.

At the European Parliament I also produced a longer research synthesis paper (10 pages) concerning self-employment in the European Union. During my recently finished internship at the ILO, I wrote the official final report (45 pages) of the international conference I worked with (the Triparite Meeting of Experts on Working Time Arrangements) that will be published late March 2012.

- Translation from French into English: I currently live in France, and apart from three semesters of full-time studies of French I have also, due to personal reasons, spent a great deal of time in France during the past five years. My French was also put into good use during the internships in Brussels and Geneva, which both took place in partially french-speaking environments. Overall I thus have an excellent level of French, as indicated by the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Francaise) on C1 level I acquired spring 2009.

- Translation Swedish to English and English to Swedish: Swedish is my mother...
