“First and foremost, I encountered a very different way of studying. In Denmark, there was a lot of group-based work which was very new to me. Also, the long, dark winters and the overuse of candles were very new to me.
I knew absolutely nothing about Denmark when I arrived. To me, it was just a country far to the north. But I was prepared for the fact that this would be an encounter with something completely different – a new environment, culture, food, people, everything – and it really was. I was given the opportunity to learn a completely different way of doing things and I seized that opportunity.”
