Så föddes mitt politiskt intresse

Kommunfullmäktige salen Skövde
Min man har varit politiskt aktivt så länge jag minns men för över 1 år sedan bytte han parti. Han blev också vald som ledamot inom distriktet Skaraborg och har möte en gång i månaden. Vi var inte ofta överens om med allt när det gäller politik då var jag en tyst supporter av ett annat parti men så idag den 22 februari, följde jag med honom till hans politiskt möte. Vi hade låtsas kommunfullmäktige och det var så trevligt och det känndes att jag kom till rätt parti. Började att läsa deras politiskt program på nätet och läste mer och mer fakta.
Ja äntligen har jag hittat rätt! Jag har varit vilsen i många år sedan jag kom till Sverige, hade aldrig röstat trots min rösträtt sedan jag blev svenskt medborgare för över 20 år sedan. Men nu tänker jag bli mer intresserad av det som händer runt omkring mig och påverkar politiskt.

Från att vara en tyst supporter till Moderaterna på 80-90-talet, sedan blev Center anhängare under Maud Olofssons tid som partiledare och nu till ett helt nytt perspektiv.

Det här ska bli spännande!

I am a swedish citizen with asian origin, lives in Sweden, entrepreneur, accountant, fashion designer, dressmaker, professional interpreter and translator and from year 2014, I also became a local politician with some assignments from the local government. I moved to Sweden after marriage with a Swedish national in 1986. Two years later we got a son followed by a daughter after 21 months. Satisfied with life in fact, I guess I got all I wished for, it feels I have everything. Being married is not just a bed of roses, the roses have thorns also and you can get it at times but we’ve always been doing pretty good. Kinder and better husband I do not think I can get, everyone has their flaws and life becomes easier if you can accept them. I’m not a perfect person either. I became a grandmother quite young, only 45 years old, was a little skeptical at first but then I loved to be one. Now I am already a grandmother of two, a boy and a girl of 20 months between them, such a great feeling, it feels like it was a replay of my life. When I have both of them at home, it feels like I was young again and is the mother of small children. I can not explain but so damn good it is. When I moved to Sweden I knew nothing about the country, but now it feels like I’ve always lived here. I speak Swedish better than my native language, better in Swedish grammar than my husband, it may sound strange but it’s true. I dream even in Swedish. I hang out with many Swedes, have worked and still working in Swedish companies. I go to the Swedish church though I am a Roman Catholic. We believe in the same God anyway. I’ve adapted pretty well in Swedish society. I think I have to adjust to that country I moved to, not the country or its citizens to adapt to me. Sweden has no responsibility whatsoever that I wanted to move here so I could not demand anything else, but now a citizen, I think I have the right as any other native Swedes. I pay taxes and do my duties as a citizen. I think I am a good role model and a loyal citizen and can fight for my new country.
