I am a 37 year old Member of The Finnish Parliament. I am also actively involved in local politics in my home city Tampere and in the Pirkanmaa region. Currently I work as a member of the Tampere city council.
I have studied local and regional administration in the School of Management at the University of Tampere. I have a Master’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.
