Yam Gyamfi, student, cand.merc.jur: I have a partner who is an entrepreneur. Whenever he gets an idea, he moves on with it immediately, and makes things happen the same day. That is really inspiring.

Jack Kværnø-Jones, PhD, IOA: What are your plans for the summer? The original plan was a family gathering in Wales but that’s been interrupted by coronavirus. Quite disappointing. Now we are renting a holiday home by the seaside in Denmark.
Beata Maria Rasmussen, administrative officer, Financial Analysis: What are your plans for the summer?

Jannick Friis Christensen, PhD Fellow, Department of Organization. What are your plans for the summer?

Other than that, my plan is to have no plans and see what comes my way.
Ditte Thøgersen, PhD, IOA: What are your plans for the summer? I’ll be staying at a holiday home with all four children and taking a trip to Jutland.
Guilherme Ghiraldi Simionato, MSc Customer & Commercial Development: What are your plans for the summer? We were excited to finish our thesis and were going to Africa for the summer.

Sophie Marie Cappelen, PhD, IOA: What are your plans for the summer? I will be finishing my PhD in Norway, where I’ll be lucky enough to be spending plenty of time outdoors in the countryside.
