Concrete proposals for solving problems in legislation
Saara Hietanen feels that she can truly improve the world in her current job. Making the world a better place has become increasingly important for her during her career.
’Injustice of all kinds has always sparked strong feelings in me, and now I am able to make a difference in my work by highlighting the shortcomings in legislation. And also by proposing concrete solutions to address these problems. I have seen how the work done by Finnwatch can lead to concrete legislative changes. Nowadays, it would be really difficult for me to start working in an organisation that doesn’t seek to improve the world through its core operations in one way or another.’
Saara Hietanen has a message for young people considering their educational choices: It’s all right even if you don’t know what you’re interested in at the end of upper secondary school.
’Based on my own experience, I believe that studies provide an opportunity to explore your own interests. All studies, regardless of subject, are beneficial and always provide you with something useful, even if your career ends up being completely different from what you originally planned. Business and Economics is a flexible and versatile study option; it allows you to focus on your own areas of interest as they become clearer during your studies.’
