Q: Why did you move to New York?
It’s always been a dream of mine to come and live in New York, even for a little while.
So when I had the opportunity to come here and do my internship I took it!
Q: What did you get from this experience?
I have met some amazing people, seen some amazing places and I’m sure that it’s going to take some time for me to understand that I really did stay in New York for 3,5 months!
Q: What are your three favorite places in the City?
Central Park, all the parks actually and West Village
Q: Do you have a favorite restaurant in NYC?
I’m the worst person to say any good restaurants. But there is a great italian restaurant on 2nd avenue, famous pizzaplace Grimaldi’s in Brooklyn and best sushi comes from Roosevelt Island.
Q: Do you have a favorite store?
Not really, we don’t have Forever 21 or Brandy Melville in Finland so I did spend some time (and money) there. There are lots of great small stores all over the city. Whole foods is also nice!
Q: What are your favorite things to do on your free time here?
Just walking around, there is so much places to see and you always end up somewhere nice!
Q: What do you think is the best thing about living in New York?
Well it’s New York! Who wouldn’t want to live here? Everybody always talks about New York, movies and tv is full of New York and now I’m able to say; been there done that!
Q: What do you miss from Finland?
Chocolate, my dog, family, and friends
Q: Describe New York in three words
Spectacular, scary, and stylish
Q: Describe Finland in three words
I’m not going to say cold because people here think it’s freezing cold all the time. I think Finland is clean, care-free and cheerful!
