I moved here from Sweden. I came up to visit here for about a month then I moved to Vancouver as part of my internship for 8 months - hated it. It was cold and I was freezing, lonely, and broke. I found it was really hard to make friends in Vancouver. It’s a beautiful city but clicky and I knew no one going there so I was pretty lonely. After that I went back to Sweden for a year and finished my degree then I moved to Fort McMurray permanently.
I’ve been here for about 5 years now and I got my residency after 2 years. My heart is in the arts and if you're to practice arts especially as a beginner like myself this is an amazing place to do it. The arts community is very welcoming, warm, and creative - it's vibrant.
I spend most of my time at the theater, Keyano, Suncor energy center for the performing arts (SECPA), I volunteered between 150 and 160 hours per month last year it was all for the arts especially at the theatre, which is pretty insane but it's fun.
I like to go for walks on the trails like everybody else, I tend to spend a lot of time in the woods it's beautiful there. I also like it down by the Snye and the Shipyard it's beautiful. There's a lot of little spots around town that are amazing.
