Introduce yourself briefly
I am a 20-year-old warm-hearted and happy Estonian. I’m a huge coffee lover and I try to take little steps towards saving the world on a daily basis. I have an active spirit – I don’t enjoy doing nothing for too long and for that reason I’m always on the hunt for new challenges or activities. I am currently starting out as an Events team manager in EBS Student Council.
Three facts about you
- I don’t like conflicts or tension between people, so I always try to solve the problem ASAP
- Even though I love travelling and I’ve been on planes over hundreds of times, flying is still my biggest fear
- I am very determined, and I always give out 100% so that everything gets done the way it should.
How did you find your way to EBS?
EBS found the way into my life really unexpectedly. I came to the interview on the very last day of Spring admissions period. I didn’t even have the codes for my ID-card, so I had to call through every person in the school to get myself registered. I decided between a few universities, but I eventually realised that EBS was the right one for me. I’ve always liked to do things MY WAY, to be the one responsible and to organize things by myself. That’s why I felt that I could get this kind of an education from here so when I graduate, I would be brave enough to take action and come out from every situation as a winner.
You are the new manager of Events team of EBS Student Council. Tell us about some plans for the upcoming year.
My priority is to continue organising the events that have taken place in the past, add some personality of my own and of my team to them and to offer high-quality events to our ebsters. We have a few new events planned, which will be interesting and challenging for us. I’m excited to work with my team and I hope that we manage to be inspiring and motivating teammates to each other.
What do you do on your free time?
My heart belongs to three things: nature, travelling and great food. My energy and great mood always come from cycling, walking in the woods or witnessing mesmerizing sunsets by the sea. My bike has become one of my best friends in the past few years and I try to ride with it whenever I can. I also take part of Tartu bike marathons every year.
I’m all about new experiences. I enjoy discovering new restaurants or travelling destinations the most. Mainly with my friends, family or partner.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years, after graduating?
I see myself working abroad and travelling the world, experiencing new things and discovering new cultures and then to come back to Estonia in few years and start my own company.
If you could live a life of any celebrity, who would you pick and why?
Actually, I’ve always been surrounded with many amazing people, so I’ve never had the time to admire any celebrities. I really like people who do their own thing in a humble way but very passionately.
If you could magically acquire three abilities in one minute, what would you choose and why?
- To be exceptionally talented in one particular field
- To have a singing voice, because why not
- To be able to speak every language in the world – I think that this doesn’t even require an explanation
A quote to live by
Recently, I heard a saying “One thing at a time” and I try to organize my life by keeping that in mind.
