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!]

An English philology major with a passion for reading and writing. I also like photography and wish I was better at it. If you're a fan of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Charmed or Buffy, we already have something in common.
