Introduce yourself briefly
I’m a girl from Pärnu who won’t settle for mediocrity and who don’t know how to do nothing. I often find myself thinking “What’s the next thing I should do?”. I’m intrigued by activities that challenge me – one of my favourites is organizing events. It’s slowly becoming a part of my nature.
I have a really bubbly, positive and bright personality. As a scorpio, I’m quite stubborn, decisive and have clear goals in sight. My strengths are courage and the ability to think and act fast.
Three facts about you
1) I’m a morning person because in the mornings I have the most energy and radiance. It depends on the morning too, of course 😉
2) Doing nothing is really not my thing. I like to keep myself in motion because we all live once. And that life could be preferably memorable.
3) Dancing is my great passion, specially folk dance. I got the dancing bug when I was little, because I was a gymnast for a long time back then. To me, dancing is another level of expressing my feelings and emotions. And it’s also pleasing to the eye too 😉
How did you find your way to EBS?
Already in the beginning of high school, I knew, that I wanted to go to an university that would give me the knowledge and skill set to develop myself constantly and to be my own boss. In the search for that kind of school and by considering all the options, EBS was the only one left on my radar, so here I am.
You are actively contributing to an event Lahe Koolipäev. In what position you are there and what are your responsibilities?
Lahe Koolipäev is the biggest youth conference in Estonia. On that day we are trying to pass the knowledge and information of the fields that are not covered in school lessons, to youngsters. We also want to offer them some exciting experiences and the possibility to be a part of a big thing. In addition, the youth has the opportunity to meet some different companies and universities that could come in handy while making decisions regarding their future.
In the organizing team, I have a position of project manager’s assistant. It’s my responsibility to know about everything that’s going on regarding all activities and fields. I get to help the team with different tasks, organize meetings, edit a book and a lot more.
You come from Pärnu. How’s Tallinn?
Yes, it’s true that I come from Pärnu, and I like to think that this is the reason behind my positivity and glow. I didn’t live in the city, while going to school there, but in a beautiful countryside place in the woods on the verge of a lovely river, where there was always a bit more sunny than anywhere else in the summers. It’s my favourite place to run to, away from a speedy life, to this day. 🙂
The capital city life is a whole new thing for me: new awesome school, new friends and new environment. All of it has brought a lot of new into my life. Every day, spent in Tallinn, is exciting and you’ll never know what the next day may bring to you.
What do you do on your spare time?
Thinking of a regular week of mine, and how much spare time that leaves me with, I have to admit, there’s not a lot of it. After going to school, I’m usually working out or organizing the previously mentioned event, Lahe Koolipäev. To be honest, I don’t mind having fewer opportunities to laze anymore, because that leaves me with more time to do the things that I like, every day.
But, on the occasion of having some free time, I have made it my mission to master cooking. I’m still pretty bad at it.
Tell us about your ambitions and dreams that you’d like to accomplish in the next 20 years.
I have a dream since I was little – to try out organizing different kind of events to get the experience of it and and to turn it into an advantage – to make it my job.
Now, my perspective has changed a bit. And I thank EBS for it. I have lost the thought of working just to earn money and to make life easier. I really want to do only the things that make me smile in the mornings. I wish that my job was my hobby in the future, and that I could do it even while being on a holiday for example.
I have a dream of travelling and seeing as much of the world as possible. I definitely want to have my own home and a family, but there’s still time for that.
Who has been your greatest inspiration?
I’m inspired by the environment I live in and by the people that surround me.
What’s the food you can’t just say “No” to?
KOHUKE (chocolate glazed quark/curd snack). I have a crazy addiction. I especially enjoy the coconut Karums.
Your favourite book and a TV-show.
I really enjoy reading love novels and one of my favourites is definitely “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë.
Favourite TV-shows come and go, but there’s a series that I’d watch any time, no matter the episode – “Desperate Housewives” 🙂
A quote you live by.
,,Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from negativity.’’
I believe that if we are surrounded by lovely and supportive people then we have a greater potential to develop and to reach higher every day. You just need to realise what kind of people are “your people” who bring out the best in you 🙂
