What is your favorite thing to do after an exam?
I usually buy a cup of good coffee and take a walk after an exam. One of my favorite places is Vanhankaupunginlahti because of it´s nature and peacefulness.
Why did you decide to study veterinary medicine?
I decided to become a vet at the end of elementary school. I wanted a challenging profession in which I could help someone. I also like animals, so it crossed my mind I could become a vet.
Who is your biggest inspiration?
I admire people who are modest and don’t complain about minor things. Also, people who don’t think badly of other people – or at least behave like they wouldn’t – are very inspiring.
What is your spirit animal?
Bullfinch. They are easily recognized (the round little bird with the red stomach), not too noisy but always put you on a good mood when you see them.
Describe the perfect afternoon.
The perfect afternoon would start with the awareness that I had finished all the tasks I had for the morning. Then I would take a quiet moment with a cup of coffee and go to do some exercise.
What’s your biggest phobia?
High places. I don’t jump voluntarily from a diving tower or take a ride in a big wheel.
What’s your favorite movie of all time?
The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I could watch it again and again. [Ed. note: Hear, hear!]
