“I am 32 and from Kuopio, Finland. What is unique about my hometown? Well, a certain well-known figure, Santa Claus, is from Finland and we have a very strong sauna culture. Something interesting I’ve done so far in life is make a documentary of Iceland. In terms of my educational background, I studied International business in both Finland and Australia. While in school, I wanted to work at an embassy but later on in my career, when I actually did, I didn’t like it.
I will be interning at a virtual currency, trade and commerce company. Although I don’t know what kind of work I’ll be doing exactly, I hope to learn some transferrable skills and meet new people. I chose China because this country seems to be a major hotspot. I randomly found Gi2C and was interested to learn more about this country that was rich in culture.
I’m really looking forward to learning some Mandarin. I expect it to be a challenging but beneficial experience. I currently speak Finnish, Swedish, French and English. I think knowing other languages in beneficial in terms of quickly understanding new grammar rules.
My family responded positively when I told them I was going to do an internship in China. I look forward to the new experience, but I will miss the clean air of my home!”
We look forward to hearing an update from Olli after his internship is finished!
