Where are you from?


What would you like to tell about yourself?

Pro-active. Passionate. Enthusiastic to learn and improve.

I am studying a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration at TAMK and during the spring, I will start my specialization on Entrepreneurship. I enjoy being active in student organizations, I have volunteered as an International Tutor, where we guide exchange students and help with their student wellbeing. Currently, I am a Degree Tutor, as well as being part of the Tampere Student Ambassadors. I believe that hard work will take you anywhere you want to go. My future goals include continuing my studies in Finland, and completing a Master’s degree in the same field.

What makes Tampere special for you?

Tampere is my home, and as such, I want to be the best for this city.

Tell about your professional activities?

Recently I have focused on student organizations by volunteering to activities such as International Tutors, Degree Tutors and Tampere Student Ambassadors. I also have experience working for American Airlines as a Ticketing Agent.

What is your involvement in international activities?

Previous to living in Finland, I did a high school exchange year in Taiwan. Being open to many cultures has given me awareness of the rich diversity in the world. My studies have also given me an international and local perspective of business in Finland. As well as being part of international activities in student associations.

What is your mission as a Tampere Ambassador?

Increase international awareness to the different study opportunities that Tampere has to offer. I’m also very excited about Tampere3 and all the benefits that will bring to future students.

What potential do you see for Tampere in the future?

Tampere is a growing city, and now it’s the time to guide it towards its best outcome. From the student perspective, we should increase the opportunities for graduates, as well as supporting innovation and entrepreneurship for the creation of more jobs.
