“I have been very happy in Otaniemi. When I first moved here from Oulu I was pleased that the surroundings offered a lot of nature. In the summer, I found cows in a nearby meadow. Even so, when necessary, I can get to the centre of Helsinki by bike in just over 20 minutes. For the past year, I have worked at the same time as I've completed my studies. To balance out this intense year, I'm planning to take a year off my studies next year and go to Sri Lanka to surf. It is good to sometimes take time off.”
