Hi my name is Sebastian Jansson, I was born and raised in Södertälje Sweden. To be more exact I grew up in a small town called Enhörna, love that little village with all my heart. It actually has a a nickname Cherry country, and we do have the greatest remains of the vikings in the world from the trading post Birka that I am sure all you history lovers will fins interesting.
But more importantly for me personally, I started to play soccer in this little town, and that is the reason why I am here in the USA right now. I just started my senior year at Marquette University, where I play soccer and study Broadcasting and Electronic Communication as well as Marketing, I have had such an amazing experience so far both as a soccer player but also as a student.
As a soccer player I have been a crucial part of a program that has completely turned around, from being ranked 160th when I arrived to being ranked top 10 in the country. We have won the Big East regular season title twice, and the Big East Championship once. We are also the only Marquette Men’s Soccer team to win an NCAA game, but more importantly as a team we consistently have been able to reach above a 3.0 GPA, and have spent many hours doing volunteer work throughout Milwaukee. The top being the Feed My Starving Children, an opportunity that was started by our team captain Brain Ciesiulka where we packed 100,000 meals for starving children.
When it comes to school I have had such a great experience, Marquette is a great University, and I do not think I could have chosen a better school. I have been allowed to develop my skills in videography, marketing, social media, as well as content strategy throughout classes as well as internships. I hope to take that knowledge into the field of marketing, and promotion. Would love the opportunity to do that for a professional soccer team in order to also use my soccer skill set in this specific area or work, but I must say it would be an equally challenging and interesting opportunity to work for a company that is not involved with sports.
