Sara in Denmark | #MyEmigrationStory

Once upon a time, I lived across the hall from this super cute Danish boy at the University of Illinois. After years of long distance, we got hitched and, well, here I am in the Land of Danes! I have a family reunification visa, which basically gives me all the benefits of a Danish citizen (free healthcare and education woohoo!), but it took almost a year to process. Despite becoming a bit despondent due to my inability to work or study while the application was processing, I have gained a year’s worth of experiences in this new country. Allow me to show you Denmark through my eyes – the eyes of an immigrant.
