Qualification- Well I have a levels in Media(moving image) and am hoping to continue studying at university next year.

So far I have been an au pair, which was a terrible experience and one I never wish to repeat. I now do some teaching but I haven't been given a contract yet and have not been paid as of yet, have been working for more than a month. I have an interview for another job next week *fingers crossed*

I can speak basic finnish and some short sentences and I attend Finnish langauge classes twice a week.

Qualification: Communication Bsc with several other post-graduate studies on marketing, advertising, filmmaking and e-communication stuff...

I have worked mainly on the turistic sector in HKI, thanks to my other languages skills.

Currently I'm begining to speak more Finnish, actually this week I surprised myself after having some long conversation on the bus back home... OK simple phrases and slow but I felt pretty emotioned...
