I am sitting on the train on my way to Linköping and this semester’s first U9, a network between the nine largest unions and associations around Sweden that represents Business and economics students. It is one of the external networks where I represent LundaEkonomerna. It is currently March, and more than half of my time as President of LundaEkonomerna has passed. Time flies by!

When this chronicle is published the chance to apply for my position, and other positions in the Board, will be open. My greatest tip is – do it! One year ago, I was thinking about applying for the position, doing a list of pros and cons. In my cons I had stated that I would have to take a sabatical year from my education, and that it would take a lot of time and that I would be put in a lot of uncomfortable and hard situations. Eight months later I can easily say, that list was not a list of cons – both of my lists were lists of pros. To take one year off and doing this 110 %, has been fantastic and I have learned more then I have ever done at school. I also think that I have more energy now to go back in September and finishing my bachelors. Yes, it does take a lot of time but when every second is a blessed, why would you not want to put a lot of time and effort into it? The uncomfortable and hard situations, yes, they have been there! And I will quote Carina Brorman, a leader that I have met in Leadership Academy that said “you have to become friends with the hard and uncomfortable situations to self-develop” and I can say that they are my friends now.

To sum it up, it has been a fantastic eight months so far, and now I will enjoy every minute and do as much as possible before it is over. This has been the best decision in my life so far and I hope that you do the same and apply for a position within the Board of LundaEkonomerna!
