What are your expectations for studying and living in Sweden?

“When I search the information about Sweden, several words just pop into my mind, like coldness, quietness, nature, northern lights, and so on. But most importantly, the Swedish values —equality is one of the most precious things in Sweden. As a member of the LGBT community, I personally feel that living in Sweden is happier than in other countries.”
