I’m from sunny California but have lived and worked in chilly Sweden for three decades. I’m bilingual but speak Swedish with an American accent which makes Swedes ask themselves, “Who is she?” “Where is she from?” These are questions I’m constantly asking myself along with “What am I doing here?”. I’m currently writing an MA thesis using the theoretical framework of Julia Kristeva and, according to Kristeva, the immigrant, in trying to define herself, doesn’t ask “Who am I?” like most people do, but “Where am I?”
