Ebbe Sweet

After graduating from Bates College in 2011, Ebbe Sweet started the blog Champagne for Ducklings, where she offers her thoughts on post-college life. Her blog features her photos, recipes, and travel stories – both from France, where she worked as a teaching assistant last fall, and from her three favorite cities: San Francisco, her hometown; Paris, where she spent her junior year abroad; and New York, where she currently resides.

In addition to writing, Ebbe enjoys dancing, running, cooking, and, especially, taking photos; she is currently a dance, travel, and event photographer in New York. Her photography has been published in Dance Teacher Magazine, The Bates Student newspaper, the Lewiston Sun Journal, various Bates College publications, and a gallery of runners up for the 2010 National Geographic Energizer contest.
