Gabriela Mercado Narváez

Four years ago, Gabriela uprooted from Mexico to Sweden, spending time in Linköping and Vilhelmina before finally settling down in Gothenburg. Gabriela is right at home here.

“I often get asked how I put up with the weather. Sure, I am used to a completely different climate, but I really like Sweden and the weather here. In Monterrey, where I was born, the temperature is normally around 30–40 degrees, and droughts are commonplace. This is why I really appreciate the variety of the climate here.”

Gabriela has already taken a Master’s in Language and Culture at the University of Linköping, and is currently studying towards a Ph.D. in Literary Studies in Gothenburg. She is focusing on the Spanish author, Miguel de Unamuno, and his view on masculinity.

“Naturally, it will take a while to meet people and make friends, but I feel really optimistic about settling down here and achieving my goals. Gothenburg has a really good vibe. The people are open, and there are loads of fellow Ph.D. students for me to hang around with. Gothenburg offers a wide range of cultural attractions, and unlike many other cities, you don’t need to be loaded to have a good time here.”
