How did we find Helene?
As we are exclusively internationals in our podcast team, every one of us has come across Helene – she works in SDU RIO and helps international students find their place in Denmark.
However, although many know who Helene is, we were pretty sure that her real story remains uncovered. And so, being true to our podcast motto discovering your stories, we approached her and invited her for an interview.
Spoiler alert: She said yes!
As always, it turned out to be a wonderful discussion. We were pleased that it also found its place on Helene’s LinkedIn and grateful for all the positive reactions there.
Enjoy listening to Helene’s thoughts on her career shift, approach to interculturality, research mindset, and inclusion of internationals into Danish society.
