In March 2020, I was finishing my bachelor in Energy and Environment Engineering at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm when COVID-19 reached Sweden. Regardless of the pandemic, I wanted to continue my studies at KTH but also combine it with an additional experience abroad which is why I have selected EIT InnoEnergy Master School. The opportunity of receiving a double degree made it even more compelling.
Of course, the outbreak of the pandemic affected everyone. Some reacted with panic, harvesting toilet paper and canned food at supermarkets, while others, such as me, initially failed to grasp the severity of the new virus. When the university campus closed and countries started shutting their borders, my classmates and I were convinced that everything would be back to normal in a week, or maybe as much as a month?
Oh, how wrong we were.
