ASU's Ejdervik Aims to Defend Title
By Haley Hirai
It was fall 2008 when Rebecca Ejdervik left her snowy home of Sweden and arrived with only two suitcases in sunny Arizona.
“I got everything new. We went to IKEA. It felt like home anyways,” said Ejdervik, the All-American ASU junior and reigning Pac-10 100-breast champion.
A native of Vallentuna, Sweden, Ejdervik came to ASU to develop her swimming career and education at the same time. The adjustment to a new country, school, and life was challenging, but well worth it she said.
