Why I Chose Lourdes: I chose Lourdes because I was so impressed by the open and welcoming atmosphere I found here. Everyone I talked to was so genuine, and to me, it proved that the Lourdes community really does live up to the values they promote. It’s a small community with a big heart, and I wanted to be a part of bringing new students into the Lourdes family.
Hobbies/Interests: I love to travel, and I am always eager to learn something new. As a result, my home is filled with books on a great variety of subjects, I speak Finnish fluently, and I am learning French and German as well. I also have a soft spot for animals of all kinds, so normally the animals outnumber the people in my house!
