I am a 30 year-old politician from Tampere. I work as a MP and vice president of the Social Democratic Party. I am also actively involved in local politics in Tampere and in the Pirkanmaa region. Currently I work as a chair person of the Tampere city council.
I study local and regional administration in the School of Management at the University of Tampere. I have a Bachelor's degree in Administrative Studies (B.Soc.Sc.).
The values that are important to me are equality, freedom and global solidarity. These are also the founding values of social democracy. Environmental issues and ecological sustainability are also very important to me.
