Where Are They Now? #003: Helle (Denmark)

Volume THREEof our regular feature on the Student Tours Scotland blog. This weeks Where are they now takes us to Copenhagen in Denmark. Enjoy!

Student Tours Scotland (STS): Thanks for being one of our first Where Are They Now interview. It's been around four years since you started studying in Glasgow, Scotland. Introduce yourself for us: name, where you are from and one random fact about yourself.

Helle: Helle from Denmark. I'm 27 years old and live in Copenhagen. I enjoy travelling - backpacking, meeting people, partying, sports, my job, having visitors from all over the world... everything that involves people really. - And FOOD!

STS: What do you miss the most about Glasgow and Scotland?

Helle: The amazing nature (islands), castles, people and humour. AND - the great, very creative names of pubs: "Filthy Mc Nasty's", "Bad Ass", "Dirty Dicks", etc.

STS: What one place in Scotland was your favourite?

Helle: Hard one... City-wise I loved Glasgow because of its variety in people, party possibilities, mix of old beautiful buildings and newer relatively rough, cold ones, and that it was easy to go 'treasure hunting' - finding new hidden, funny, weird places.

STS: Do you think it's important to get out and about in Glasgow and Scotland when you study here?

Helle: Of course! - not a question!

STS: But enough about Scotland. What are you doing with yourself now?

Helle: Just handed in my masters thesis in Culture, Organisation & Leadership (specifically: Event Management). Going to defend it orally this month. Now I'm working with Volcano Concepts on a big b2b event project in São Paulo.

STS: Have you been back in Scotland since you first left?

Helle: Yes, once. Visiting friends.

STS: If you could offer any one piece of survival advice to someone about to study in Scotland what would it be?

Helle: Hmm, survival advice. Make sure to drink enough beer...(?!) and MEET PEOPLE!

STS: Cheers for taking the time to chat with us Helle. All the best.
