Kristine Bisgaard, Staff Writer

With a kind smile and calming voice, Kristine Bisgaard (‘25) is the embodiment of the Danish concept of “hygge: a word that cannot be directly translated into English but roughly means an atmosphere of comfort, coziness, and connection between people. Hailing from Denmark although she has moved around the world since she was seven years old, going from Northern Europe to the Bay Area, and now Claremont Kristine is no stranger to frequent change. Even her introduction to Webb was more sudden than most, as she simultaneously entered boarding school and the Webb Canyon Chronicle as a new junior. Despite the inevitable obstacles, Kristine has welcomed every opportunity to explore her new community with an open mind and easygoing personality. This year, Kristine looks forward to continuing to watch her favorite Danish TV shows, making new friends in her “home away from home,” and learning how to utilize journalism to make her own unique contribution to the Webb community by serving as a bridge between academic and social life. From embracing the creative freedom that Honors Studio Art offers to playing her best as a varsity tennis athlete, Kristine will no doubt delicately balance the rigor that Webb encourages with her love of “hygge and spending time with the people she cares about.
