I have worked with pharmaceuticals my whole grown up life from various aspects. My main interests when I was in high school was science, especially biology, chemistry and physics. Since we lived in the country side there was not much to do but study. When I applied for the university I knew I wanted to help to develop new pharmaceutical drugs to improve peoples lives.
Today, school in Sweden is very different compared to when I studied. Now, when I look back I feel that I have been very lucky. I have always felt freedom to not be restricted to a particular area. Of course, you still have that freedom.
Even though I am interested in science, it doesn´t mean that I don´t like other subjects such as learning different languages, history etc. I believe that it is important to know about these areas to be able to communicate science. In my spare time I try to learn more about history. I am convinced that you need to know history to understand different cultures and people. Sometimes it takes generations to finally move on to something new. Memories over generations are not always good.
“Sometimes you have to look back, to be able to move on in the future”
Sweden is a country in peace since more than two centuries; so we have a little burden compared to many other countries in the world.
I guess, a reason why I am interested in reading, is to understand a little about life. But of course, I love to practice life! And that must be life experience?
Have a beautiful day!
