Interview with the Handels24 winners
We interviewed the winners of the Handels24 Contest, Fanny Söderlund and Nicole Nguyen. Fanny will spend her three weeks of internship this summer at The Boston Consulting Group and Nicole at Diplomat Communications.
Congratulations - You are the winners of the Handels24 contest! How does it feel?
Nicole: It feels great. It's been really, really fun.
Fanny: Yes, it feels amazing
What has been the greatest challenge during this contest?
Fanny: To find all of the names and especially getting ahold of them. There were a lot of people who didn't even know who the people on the assignment list were, so that was a bit of a challenge.
Nicole: Exactly, it wasn't like you could just look up the name and then go find them. You had to really look and ask someone who knew of someone who might know of them.
How come you applied to the Handels24 contest?
Nicole: I'm very into SSE overall, but I saw it on Facebook and thought it seemed like fun.
Fanny: Same here, I have been wanting study here for a really long time, so I felt it was a great opportunity to get to know the school better and connect with the people here.
Do you plan on applying to Stockholm School of Economics yourselves?
Nicole: Yes, I'm planning on applying for the fall semester.
Fanny: I'm taking a year off, but I am planning on applying next year.
