Student, scientist, progressive, woman, dreamer, activist… and ever hopeful.

Just the musings of a 20-something year old on her study abroad journey to Copenhagen, Denmark. I’ll be studying at the Københavns Universitet (University of Copenhagen) starting in January, 2011. In my normal life, I am a student at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, USA studying biological sciences. I’m sure as you read this blog you will learn more fascinating facts about me, like my favorite western film (High Noon) and my least favorite condiments (mayonnaise and relish).

    Hey Hannah! I somehow found your blog whilst researching my upcoming exchange in Copenhagen. Love your work! I was wondering if it was possible for me to ask you a few questions specifically about Tietgenkollegiet. As i will be staying at a student residence for a year I am keen to make to right decision. If you’re happy to answer my questions, please email the address I supplied in this form. Thanks!

    Great blog, I really enjoyed reading it … found the link from the KU website where I will be attending as a MA full-degree student in the fall. I lived/studied in DK in 2009-2010 with DIS and upon leaving had the same intentions as you to return back to the country post-graduation. Some dreams do come true! There is a lot of hard work in arranging everything to come back, but I hope it works out for you. If you like, you can follow me at browngirl-bigworld.tumblr.com, it’s a blog of a little of this and that, but some on my musings about Denmark as well.
    Cheers and best of luck!

      Thanks for the comment; I’ll definitely check out your blog! Are you planning on staying in DK just for your masters or beyond as well? And where are you from?

        Thanks for your reply … I am definitely thinking about staying in DK longer. The MA program is 2 years though, so it is quite a bit of time and I’m sure i’ll be a very different person after the experience, just like I was the last time around … I definitely prefer Danish life to life in New York – where I am from … just too crowded and stressed! Anyway, feel free to keep in touch if you’d like more info about how to make the post-college transition to DK!
