From the board: From corporate relations with love

My name is Juhana or JJ as my friends call me and I’m one of the new members of KY board of 2016. I’m responsible for corporate relations, careers and the upcoming Helsinki Business Symposium. I’m truly excited about the coming year and I can’t wait for all the events to come.

I’m a second year student majoring in economics. I started my KY career and spent my first year as the corporate relations coordinator of the Cultural Sub-committee (KUJ ry). I’m truly proud to say that in the Cultural Sub-committee I was responsible for the dollar green overalls of the class of 2015. Last spring I was also selected as a committee member of the Helsinki Business Symposium and I have been working really hard to build one of the biggest KY events in the student year calendar.

As the Sub-committee year was coming to an end, I found myself searching for the next step in my life. Committee work was hard but I loved it and I thought that I could probably top that experience only with a year in the executive board of the Association of Economics Students in Helsinki. After a few months of hard work, interviews and panic I was chosen as a member of the board and I can tell that it was one of the happiest moments of my life.

What I’m waiting for this year is new experiences, friends and responsibilities. In addition to corporate relations, I will also be in charge of creating new proper career events and opportunities to our students and I’m very excited to spend this coming year researching these opportunities for you.

If you have any questions, proposals or just want to chat, just come and find me in Espilä!
