Former student participating in På spåret

Published: 30 October 2015

Tina Mehrafzoon was only 17 years old when she began studying journalism at Luleå University of Technology in 2008. After graduating three years later, she was quickly offered job as host of Musikguiden in P3 and an already successful career reaches another highlight this fall as she participates as a competitor in the tv show På spåret.

- It is obviously great to be part of Sweden's biggest TV shows, but it's incredibly scary too. You do not want to make a fool of yourself in a knowledge program like På spåret, says Tina Mehrafzoon.

Fill in each other's gaps

The recording of the program series started earlier in the fall and Tina Mehrafzoon pairs with the writer Aino Trosell.

- We found each other directly and get on well together. It feels like we complement each other very well, the generation gap means that we can fill each other's gaps. Aino knows lots about history, and I know almost everything about popular culture, says Tina Mehrafzoon who prepared herself for the program through an application on the mobile phone.

- I have studied old Trivial Pursuit question, it is perhaps not so much that comes to use during the show but I'm more educated now than before the recordings anyway.

Important to win

Like many others Tina Mehrafzoons relationship with På spåret consist mostly of social gatherings with friends on Friday nights. But now that she participates herself the goal is to win it all.

- I'm not such a charming loser, I really want to win. It's really important for me.

Honor to represent the university

Tina Mehrafzoon see it as an honor to represent Luleå University of Technology in Sweden's largest entertainment program.

- It feels really cool to be part of the show and get to represent the university. I liked it very much in Piteå and learned a lot as a student but also as a person.
