"I know it's difficult and some days feels depressing, but use your time wisely. Take the Swedish course for beginners that SDCN provides, online courses to improve your skills, brush up on your CV, or do some volunteering work. All of these things can help you to get to know more people, widen your friendship circle and make your life in Stockholm much easier. And believe me, the hard work will pay off."
