“I have a warm heart and traveling gives me an opportunity to get to know other cultures and people. I have traveled in over 25 countries and that has broadened my view of the world a lot.”

Krista is currently a student of the Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences, where she is studying Marketing. Her dream job is to host her own travel TV show, but she would also like to work in marketing once she finishes her degree. Describing herself as adventurous, Krista has 13 years experience competing in aerobic gymnastics and has participated in three bungee jumps! When it comes to literature, Krista likes to read books where she also learns at the same time, and her favourite music genre is RnB.

“Finland is one of the safest countries in the world. It is very clean, has beautiful nature and friendly but shy people. Helsinki has a lot of history but great modern culture too.”

 

Question Time With Krista

I love Instagram. It’s like a diary that I can look at when I am old. Also different news sites so I can see what happens in the world.

Spotify. Music makes any situation better. It gives me power and sometimes makes me cry.

What is your favourite fashion website?

I have plenty of different fashion bloggers that I like. Usually I tend to search new ones.

What is your most memorable encounter?

When I met the Finnish prime minister Alexander Stubb. He is highly respected and I think that he is also clever in the field of marketing.

Favourite foods?

Summer food in Finland is delicious! I also love grilled meats.

What annoys you most about the world you live in?

That money rules the world. Rich people get richer and poor people get poorer. Also, greedy people.
