President/Communication Manager: Minh Hieu Nguyen

Hi all!

My Name is Minh and I am a graduate student in Tourism from Lapland UAS. I am originally from Vietnam but I have been living in Rovaniemi for almost 7 years already. I love traveling a lot as I've been to about 25 countries so far, mostly solo :) I decided to join ESN in April in 2018 because I love meeting new people and also, helping new students, as I know how struggling it can be. Can't wait to meet you all soon in Rovaniemi!

Vice President / Local Representative: Jenna Kasvi

Hei, I am Jenna! I’m the VP of ESN Lapland and I’m working on completing my masters in Leadership Psychology. While I am proud to call Roveniemi my home, ESN has both piqued and satisfied my curiosity about cultures from around the world, and inspired me to study as an exchange student in Russia, and work in the United States over my summers. Through ESN, I have made friends from a variety of diverse backgrounds and have never been bored experiencing social events that are truly multicultural. If you have any questions about ESN, University of Lapland, or anything under the sun, feel free to contact me. Cheers!

Hello everyone! I'm Eetu, the treasurer of ESN lapland. I study psychology of leadership, four years already. I started hanging out with exchange students at my first year, continued as international tutor and now as a board member, because I had so much fun and met many great people with this amazing ESN experience!

Secretary: Krista Perälä

Hi guys, I’m Krista, the secretary of ESN Lapland. I’m a tourism research student at the University of Lapland, currently keeping myself busy with two boards of different student associations. I’ve never had an exchange experience of my own which is why joining ESN Lapland has taught me quite a lot. Rovaniemi is my dear hometown and I’m very happy to welcome all of the new exchange students here this fall.

Hey all! My name is Elli and I am one of the event coordinators of ESN Lapland. I study law in the University of Lapland. But since I was a little girl I've been extremely interested of news from abroad. That's why I am happy to be in our board. See you in our events during this semester!

Project Coordinator: Hanna Palosuo

 

Hey all! My name is Hanna and I’m the Project Coordinator of ESN Lapland. I’m starting my second year in uni this autumn majoring in Leadership Psychology. Originally, I’m from southern Finland, but I’ve never been happier than here in Rovaniemi. The people here are the greatest. We have four beautiful seasons, and everything from pubs to ski slopes are within walking distance. I like to spend a lot of time in nature and in our uni cafeterias. If I’m not studying or working, I’m living my student life to the fullest. There aren’t many parties or other happenings I have missed. If you have anything on your mind or wanna catch up, don’t hesitate to contact me. 
See you soon!

Trip Coordinator: Niko Vuokila

 

Hey guys! I'm Niko, the trips coordinator of ESN Lapland! I'm a fourth-year-student of tourism at the Lapland UAS, so I'm pretty close to wrapping up uni! I'm from the small city of Kemi, also famously known as the Monaco of Finland with its long coastline and awesome beaches along the Gulf of Bothnia. Studying in Rovaniemi has been a blast, especially for a nature-lover like I am as the wilderness is just at your backdoor over here. My own exchange in Amsterdam and my last year's student tutoring for exchange students inspired me to apply for ESN Lapland. It's been such an awesome experience so far and I'm sure the experiences are going to get even better this semester!
Looking forward to meeting you all!
