Hi there, my name is Yohannes, and I’m from Ethiopia, the Cradle of Humanity. I've always been curious and ambitious, and my journey to Karolinska Institutet is a testament to that. I studied medicine and developed a deep fascination with the intersection of healthcare, economics, policymaking, and management. This passion led me to KI, a renowned institution known for its top-quality research and innovation in healthcare, where the facets of the healthcare world converge in one dynamic place.

I boarded the plane to Sweden, brimming with excitement and anticipation. I'm eager to immerse myself in learning healthcare management and economics and to become a part of the vibrant international community at KI. And of course, I can't wait to explore beautiful Stockholm and its archipelagos.

In my free time, I love to write and draw with pencils, capturing moments on paper. I'm always exploring and trying new things, especially with friends. I'm excited to share my stories and help you with your future endeavours at KI.
