Finland

When I came to Finland with my parents and siblings in 1992 due to the war, my life turned upside down. Our economical situation collapsed as all of a sudden I had to wear worn clothes from Red Cross, and all through my child-hood I had make every penny count. Despite this I had a happy childhood filled with love.

Aim for the EY 2010

My aim for the European Year is to take part in the current debate about the role of government in social welfare. Especially I am interested in bringing awareness of poor families and youngster’s situation. I will try to discuss these issues whenever I am in the public eye.

Why I became an ambassador: I found this and important and interesting deed.
