54. Margrete Drag (LGB 1981)

Posted By Alumni Office, mercredi, 29 octobre 2014

(Margrete Nilsen)

Margrete Drag1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
Four years (1974-78).

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?
My family came from Norway, and moved to Geneva because my father was appointed District Manager for Scandinavian Airlines.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
It is difficult to choose only one teacher, as there were many that had a great impact on me. If I have to choose, I would say M. Giobbio (French teacher). He was a persistent teacher as he refused to speak English in French class. Hence, my French improved tremendously.

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
I loved sitting by the window in LGB looking out at the campus; watching the seasons change and all the people walk by was inspiring.

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
La Vieille Ville because of the atmosphere, as well as all the charming villages in the vicinity of Geneva (e.g. Yvoire).

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
I have been married for 25 years and have three kids (all going to university). I am a trained nurse, working at the Norwegian Hospital for Cancer. Currently I am living in Oslo.

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
Continue to educate students so that they can become global citizens.

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?
Keep the Ecolint spirit close to your heart, meaning absorb as much knowledge as you can, befriend people from all over the wolrd, and respect your fellowmen no matter their background.

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
It made me who I am today; I feel my best when I am surrounded by international communities. I love to travel and experience new cultures, I enjoy foreign languages, and I see the world through Econlint eyes: without prejudice.
