My name is Matilda, I’m 19 years old and I come from Helsinki, the capital of Finland. I have always loved traveling and getting to know different cultures, and I have been fortunate enough to see many parts of the world due to my parents' jobs. When I was 16 I spent a year as an exchange student in Palermo, Italy, studying in a local high school. I really enjoyed my time in Italy and decided that I wanted to go there for my university studies as well. I chose to study Global Governance because I believe it can help me pursue my dream of having an international career. I have always had a great desire to help other people, and I have also always had a great interest in what’s happening around the globe, and this is also what motivates me for my studies.
Growing up I did a lot of sports, but now I mainly spend my spare time traveling, hanging out with my friends, cooking and watching TV series. I really look forward to meeting all of my new classmates and studying together in Rome!
