Emma Korjonen grew up in Varberg but today she lives in Lidköping here in Skaraborg. You might say what brought her here is a bit of a coincidence.
Emma studied economics at home in Varberg, and when it was time to continue her studies at university, she chose business administration at the University of Skövde. The University of Skövde provided the opportunity to study the first two years in Varberg, and then the final year on campus in Skövde, which suited Emma perfectly. She also completed an exchange semester at Rockford University in America.
Once she was back in Skövde again, she heard about a position in Lidköping that she felt she just had to apply for. For many years, Lidköping had collaborated with Rockford, the city in the USA where Emma had studied, and the position of program manager for the collaboration had just opened up.
She got the job and so moved to Lidköping to start work.
We met Emma in Lidköping one sunny day in April and took the opportunity to talk to her about her journey here. She describes Lidköping as an agreeable city that’s close to everything, and she says that as far as Skaraborg is concerned, she loves how its municipalities offer variation in nature.
