Rank: I’m a young spokes person for my Sweden.
Favorite scouting experience: I don’t really have one favourite but in 2017 there was a national jamboree in south Sweden with 11,000 participants. This camp lasted in seven days, it was one week of fun activities, beautiful sunsets and great friends. I was very happy and enjoyed the time there.
What are you most excited about for the 2019 World Scout Jamboree? I don’t have any friends that doesn’t live in Sweden but I would absolutely like to. So I’m super exited about to talk to people from different countries and continents.
Why do you want to serve as a Global Ambassador? I’ve always liked to speak and write to others about scouting and therefore I wanted to be a young spokes person. When I heard about this opportunity I thought that it fitted me well and I would regret if I didn’t at least tried. And now I’m just very proud and excited to represent my country in a such huge event like this.
What countries would you like to meet scouts from? France, Norway, Uganda, Brazil and USA.

Rank: Leader for smaller scouts, young spokesperson and challenger(=utmanare)
Favorite scouting experience: Me and some of the others leaders had planned a minicamp for our smaller scouts were the leaders dressed up as trolls and the children did different tasks. It was really fun because they were all filled with so much energy and helped each other out so it could be a fun experience for everybody.

Rank: Youth Spokesperson
Favorite scouting experience: My favourite experience as a scout was the Swedish National Jamboree of 2017, where almost 11000 Scouts gathered in Kristianstad, Sweden. My patrol and I had the pleasure of living next to a Scout patrol from Israel, which resulted in an exciting cultural exchange and gave me the opportunity to participate in the celebration of the Jewish Sabbath as well as gain deeper understanding and insight in the Scout Movement of Israel and what it entails being a scout in a culture vastly different from my own.
What are you most excited about for the 2019 World Scout Jamboree? While it surely is tempting to answer “”everything”” to this question, what I do look forward to the most is meeting people with whom I can discuss the contemporary issues of the world we live in, share ideas and opinions on how we can reach the Global Sustainability Goals, and learn about the challenges faced by scouts in different parts of the world, and, of course, get inspired by their ways of handling these challenges!
Why do you want to serve as a Global Ambassador? My main reason for wanting to be a Global Ambassador is, simply, that I truly enjoy meeting new people and get a glimpse of understanding of their perspective on life.
Secondly, I am eager to learn about and share with the world all great things that Scouts and Guides do around the globe.
Thirdly, I see the Global Ambassadors program as a great why of challenging myself, stepping outside of my comfort zone, and becoming braver in all kinds of social settings and encounters.
