When Ms. Raja first asked me to write this blog post about my experience interviewing Nobel laureate Didier Queloz, I instinctively worried about one question: how can I make this interesting for others to read while still keeping it somewhat informational? Hence, like the title suggests, I decided that I will try my best to give you some practical tips on how to effectively handle a nerve-wracking, unfamiliar situation, such as interviewing a very important figure, while still sharing my personal take on the whole experience!

Summer is coming to an end, not just yet, but within a few weeks we will have to look for our jackets in the back of the wardrobe and store away the shorts and t-shirts.

Happy Mösspåtagning

By Lydia Barsawme

Today marks Sweden’s 2021 Mösspåtagning celebration, and at IEGS, we’re excited to be together with some adaptations to our normal routine. We’ll wrap up GYAR projects, discuss logistics for graduation day, do a lottery to determine order for the utspring, and practice a bit of distanced singing outside in the sunshine. We’ve made some adjustments, but the spirit of the day remains the same: we’re here to try on our hats, but also to try on the feeling of leaving.
