Behind The Newbie: Blog Manager Haydee

According to the report of Statistiska centralbyrån published in 2018 “There are more foreign-born women than men in Sweden”*. In this blog post series, you will get to know the team behind The Newbie Guide to Sweden. The platform unites and helps newbies in their new journey in Sweden, particularly female expats.

Meet Haydee Noble, our blog manager, in Q&A sharing her role, experiences and goals.

What do you do at The Newbie Guide to Sweden? 

I am a blog manager. I welcome new volunteer bloggers, proofread their posts and publish them. This can be as easy as just publishing them because they are perfect or completely formatting them from a Word document to our website, look for photos, edit photos and completely transform a text to fit better with the Newbie style. I have been doing a couple of extra projects for the new Newbie site too.

How many years’ experience in that field? 

About 5 years but never as a full-time job as it is now.

What have you learned during the Newbie journey as a team member? 

The most important thing has been to be able to work alone and away from a team. I’m still getting used to it but it has been a positive experience. I have been learning new ways of doing things and doing again things I hadn’t done for a while.

What do you like to do in your spare time? 

Travelling, photography, cooking, reading, and writing. Anything that helps me to disconnect.

What’s your top goal for 2019? 

Keep learning, start school again and get a job!

What do you think drives you? 

Motivation is everywhere around me at the moment. Hard to put it into words.
