I am a positive 23-yearold woman from Finland. I love to take on new challenges and have travelled a lot in association with work and training. My life in sports has taught me to handle disappointments and never give up, yet be sensitive to the response of the environment and myself. I have also learned that relationships and family are more important than sports, and have a close family and lifelong friendships, all around the world. I love meeting new people and am always ready for adventures. My passions in life are writing, believing and running. I cannot go a day without them.
