If there’s one thing I love about being a freelancer, it’s the ability to test your boundaries, challenge yourself, and do something a little different. So, when National Geographic asked me to try my hand at writing a review for the new NBC comedy show, “Welcome to Sweden,” I thought . . . why not?
Now, you might be wondering what qualifies me (a researcher and visual journalist) to review a television show. Well, if leaving my full time job in 2012 and starting my own freelance business weren’t enough change, earlier this year my husband and I decided to follow his job and move to Sweden. You know, just to round things out. Thus, Nat Geo thought I might have a unique perspective on what the show gets right/wrong.
