We had excellent individual vocational visits in Kemi on April 25, each of us meeting with specialists working in careers related to our own professional fields. We have a wide variety of professional backgrounds in our group: healthcare, youth social services, journalism & public relations, marketing and accounting. Melissa, for example, visited a Veterans Hospital, Tara visited a support group at a women’s shelter, Chuck met with companies specializing in telecommunications and business innovation, and Kathryn discussed public relations and marketing with managers at the City of Kemi and the university of applied sciences. Very interesting and inspiring!
And so, after a busy week in Kemi, we drove way up past the Arctic Circle for some relaxation and fun at Levi, an awesome ski resort. Many thanks to our amazing hosts Seppo, Pekka, Matti and Armi for taking us skiing and making fabulous dinners. We had a blast, and will miss you all!
