“My name is Anna Berggren, I’m 25 years old and graduated from the BIDS programme in 2015. I have been in and out of Sweden the past years but am now currently living in Stockholm. I have always had a passion for traveling and exploring new cultures and ideas, and I believed that BIDS could help me exploring the world and its dynamics even further.”
Denise Beniwa, majored in Sociology, during her third year in the program she did an internship at Swedwatch where she was given tasks such as risk analysis on different industries and labour rights. Early on, she became interested in understanding what it is that upholds structures of inequality and understanding international relations, this is what lead her to chose the BIDS program.
David Morrow graduated from BIDS in 2014 with a major in Political Science with a thesis focusing on Sex Trafficking. His advice for fellow BIDSters, “try to enjoy your time… [and] find this balance of your ideals and your dreams and think about how you can practically do or make something with this (based on your own abilities strengths etc.).”
