I also deeply thank Mr. Anderson Guldkula for believing in me and for his great generosity. Your achievements in life have truly inspired me and knowing that your career started as a scholar at the Chamber back in 1985, I am excited what this Scholarship might bring for me on my own journey in life.

I would like to thank Mr. Bertil Edlund himself for believing in the next generation of business leaders and for making this truly unique opportunity possible. I hope to be in his position one day where one person’s generosity opens new doors for others. I would also like to express my gratitude towards the Chamber, whose value they create I really believe in, and, of course, the President of the Chamber Renée Lundholm, who has dedicated many years to establish the name of the Chamber. The next year will be a year filled with possibilities and I hope to take the Swedish-American relations to a new level. Thank you!”

    "I am incredibly honored to be standing here today as the first ever recipient of the Uppsala University Scholarship. Uppsala has given me so much during my life, and I am very grateful to get this opportunity to be able to do something in return. I look forward to, during my time at the Chamber, bring a little bit of the Uppsala I know to New York. So, a great thank you to the University and the American Friends of Uppsala University.

    To have been given this truly amazing and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is something I will cherish for the rest of my life, and I want to thank the Chamber and especially President Renee Lundholm for giving me the chance to fulfil a dream of mine. 2012 will not, as believed in ancient cultures, be the end of the world, but the start of a new fantastic chapter of my life. I want to thank you all for believing in me, I will do my utmost to not only meet your expectations but to exceed them.

    Finally, I want to congratulate Anna and Thomas on their achievements and just say that I look forward to a very eventful and exciting year filled with new experiences together!"

I would also like to thank Mr. Bertil Edlund for making this possible. He grew up in the dark forests of Sweden, just like I did.

Bertil is a true entrepreneur who seizes the opportunities and has through that created an amazing career. I am thankful for his generosity and believe that being the Bertil Edlund Scholar of 2011, getting to spend a year in New York at the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce, is a first step in creating an amazing career of my own.
