I moved to Espoo after the work in 2018. I enjoyed my stay in hilly and cozy Kauklahti. My parents and two brothers live in different parts of Finland. I live alone. I spend a lot of time with my boyfriend and other friends living in Helsinki.

I am interested in how are we doing? I have noticed that more interested zoom in others, helps us to understand the diversity and inspire around you. I enjoy conversations. I follow Finnish and world affairs closely. My favorite topics are people and phenomena, science and influencing. In my free time I play bats, HIIT and music.

The most important value in my life is peace. The peace I am talking about is understanding, respect and dialogue. Peace is also the pursuit of stability and harmony. Empathy is the strongest guarantee of peace. Reconciliation is the only way to return to peace once it is upset.

For me, it is important to have an attitude towards life as a whole. It is important to understand your own life with your choices as part of a larger whole. There are many of us. Our job is to make sure that we each have food and protection, a sense of belonging, security and appreciation, and the opportunity to realize ourselves.

My actions are based on courage. I am running for the first time in the election. True courage is vulnerability as well as the strength to live up to one's values. The courage is to defend and reform things, make choices, fail and succeed, love and give up. For me, the most important thing is the courage to live now and here.

Courage is energy that sticks!
