My name is Marissa Groh. My major was Sociology when I went to Mount Mary University. I am a graduate of Mount Mary! I have never been to Scandinavia before, so this will be my second time going to Europe. The first time was when I went to Paris with the band in high school. I turned sweet 16 there! My blogging class will be going to Copenhagen, Denmark, Malmo, Sweden, Stockholm, Sweden, and Oslo, Norway. The reason why I wanted to go to Scandinavia because my family had a foreign exchange student over to our house in high school and she is from Oslo, Norway. I wanted to see for myself what it is like. I also wanted to go to Ireland when I was still in college, but it got cancelled. I am going as a Mount Mary University Alum, so I can still get the chance to study abroad even if I already graduated. I chose to take the blogging course because I have never written a blog before and I would like to learn how! I am going for the experience and learn how to write a blog.
I love cooking, baking especially! My passion for cooking got started when I would bake Christmas cookies with my mom when I was 6 years old! I can’t wait to try authentic Swedish meatballs! I have had them before, but not authentic ones. I also can’t wait to try Swedish pancakes because I have not had them before! And lingonberries!
