Hi everyone and welcome to the Nordic Samsung Community! I thought we should get to know each other a bit better, so why not introduce ourselves. I’ll go first 🤗

 

I’m ElinH. I’m the Nordic Community Manager – in other words I make sure things run smoothly here on the community. I also, together with my fellow moderators, help with unresolved issues or questions. In addition to this, I’m always looking at ways to improve the community to ensure everyone has the best possible experience (PS. If you do have suggestions check out the Community Feedback thread).

 

In my spare time I do yoga, surf and travel. Growing up with a chef as a dad, I have a passion for good food. I also love music and believe that watching Bruce Springsteen live when I was 15 changed my life forever.

 

That’s a little bit about me! Who are you?

Hi! 😁

My name is Katya, I'm originally from  far away  town called Vladivostok in Russia. But I have been living in Sweden for the last  18 years now. I'm married and have two awesome cats that are half Sphynx and half Norwegian forest cat. They keep me pretty busy when they are not napping especially now that  I'm working from home. 

I love plants, but my husband thinks I have too many. 🌱 🤔

Kind regards

Hi @Lunarix 😀 

 

Nice to e-meet you and welcome to the Community! I personally believe that there is no such thing as too many plants 🌱

Hi @jovjan, welcome to the Community 👋

 

Even if your spare time is limited I think it's important to fill it with stuff that makes us happy, so keep doing your thing! A tip is to start a new topic in the Lounge and name it "The Photo Thread" or something like that! In that way we can all share our favorite photos whenever we want.

 

And!! There will definitely be more opportunities to post photos. Right now we have our Halloween Challenge open where you can share photos of your pumpkin creations á la spooky style 👻

Hello!

My name is Gabi and I'm currently a university student, which keeps me busy the majority of my time. In my spare time, I like to meet new people, learn new languages and photography. I'm currently fluent (and semi-fluent haha) in 4ish languages and my main model for my photos is my dog Daisy who I love with my whole heart.

Kind regards Gabi!

Heyy @Heygg01 😺

 

Wow that is so impressive!! I am only fluent in Swedish and English, but studied a bit of Spanish in school. What languages do you speak? 🏳️‍🌈

 

Welcoming you and top model dog Daisy to the community!

@Heygg01 I imagine Mandarin is quite different to Swedish and English? So impressive 👏

Hello, 

 

my name is Alice. I'm 24 years old and I currently live in Stockholm, Sweden 🇸🇪. I work within the food-tech industry and I love it because of the everyday communication I get to do. On my spare time, I enjoy cooking and going on adventures with my boyfriend and our little dog. We love to travel so we are rarely able to stay for too long in one place 😄

Hi @ALICESTRAND 👋

 

Welcome to the community!! I love to travel too - which makes it really hard with all the Covid-19 restrictions. Have you been able to go on a Swedish adventure recently? 🇸🇪

Yes, it's a bit sad with all the restrictions. But we love to travel within Sweden. We were recently in Dalarna and planing on going to Kiruna for Christmas. ❄

 

Where would you like to go once the restrictions are over? :smiling-face:

@ALICESTRAND Kiruna for Christmas sounds magic!! 🎄

 

Personally I love the sun and tropical climate, so I'd probably escape to Costa Rica or India for a little winter break if I could! Maybe next year 🤞🤞

Hello! 

My name is Patrick. I'm an American that has been willingly captured by a beautiful Norwegian that I now call my wife. I moved to Norway just over 7 years ago and feel it was the best decision of my life. We have one kid with another one on the way and a domesticated barn tabby cat. 

In my free time I enjoy a plethora of random things. I practice different forms of art from painting to photography, wood carving to digital art. I also like learning about electronics and microcontroller programming. Pretty much anything that stokes my creative side gets my attention.

On my professional side I'm a control cabinet assembler. I build components that are part of the systems that control the propulsion of ships. 

 

Anyway it's good to be here. I'm excited to see what the future holds for us here. In the meantime here's a recent digital painting I did on my Note 20 Ultra.

Hey Patrick and welcome to the Community!! Excited that you are excited to be here 😎

 

Sounds like you are someone with both creative and technology skills - lucky you! I'm considering participating in more creative activities, like a ceramics course for example. Might have to wait until the pandemic has passed though (or do it online). 

 

Go have a look around the Lounge, you might be able to give advice to some of our peers here or start your own thread dedicated to your interests ✈️

Hello and welcome Andreas!! 😊

 

Your life sounds dreamy! Do you live in Skåne? I'm dreaming of moving to Österlen in when I'm a little older and spend my whole days outside by the sea 🌊

 

Ps. I'm sure southern Sweden provides many beautiful photo landscape scenes for you to use your s20FE :camera:

Hi!

My name is Daniella and I study engineering at Uppsala University. Everything is on distance right now so time moves so slow and so fast at the same time.

The most fun I have during these times is joining contests like these :winking-face:

Stay safe everyone!

Hello Daniella 😁

 

It is weird this pandemic isn't it! Almost like I've forgotten what it was like before and in the same time can't imagine what it will be like in the future.

 

FYI - our Newsroom have loads of good articles with tips on how to work/study from home:

Enjoy! 💃
