My namn is Lisa Ringlstetter and I was one of the first students at IES Borås in 2010/11. I chose IES for 9th grade because i wanted a more respectful and encouraging environment for studying, and that is exactly what I got. I had a great year at IES - brilliant teachers, lovely classmates and a safe environment where I felt respected and my opinion heard.
After my short, but great time at IES, I went the International Baccalaureate program. Being well prepared to take on the challenge to study full-time in English. After graduation i took a gap year, lived and worked in Germany and Ireland and travelled to Iceland. Then I studied Microbiology for 2 years at the University of Dundee, Scotland. Now I am back in Sweden, studying Animal psychology and breaking in a horse, waiting for my Biology studies to start in autumn 2019. The plan is to do an Ecology master and go into research and later scientific writing.
