My name is Alma Björklund (I dare you to try pronouncing my last name!) and I'm 22 years old. I was born and raised in Sweden, but when I was finishing up my last year of high school my family moved to Wellington, FL.
The transition from Sweden to the U.S. was surprisingly easy. But, then again, someone once said that Sweden is the most Americanized country in the world, with the U.S. being a close second.
After starting my college career off at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, I ultimately decided that I wanted to be closer to home (and in warmer weather!), and transferred to UM. Needless to say, one of the better decisions I have made!
Outside of school, I spend most of my time on horseback. My family has always had horses, and I have been riding for as long as I can remember. I started competing in showjumping at the higher levels when I was about 15, and have continued to do so throughout college.
