My Travel Story

In February 2018 I will start my exchange program in Monash University, Melbourne. Monash University is one of the top schools in Australia with a GPA of 3.8/5 and is consistently ranked in the top 100 universities worldwide. It is for high achieving students who are ambitious, international and are not afraid of challenges, just like myself.

I plan to study anthropology and media while in Monash. I believe that in the field of education, these subjects give valuable perspectives to understanding the human mind, social learning and community processes in transforming society and professional life. Combined with my knowledge on learning, teaching, education and developmental work research, I am convinced that these subjects strongly support one another. Further, the courses in question would not solely complement my studies in social psychology but also support my future career aspirations in developing professional work and wellbeing. Further, these subjects are restricted in University of Helsinki, which makes my exchange even more exclusive.

This exchange program will develop my academic skills, makes me grow more independent, gives me the opportunity to make international connections and friends and will probably change the way I see the world.

This trip means very much to me. I would hugely appreciate any kind of donation and humbly thank you for taking the time to read my post!
