Last year, Miss Finland 2017, Michaela Söderholm, has had enough work to do during her term. In addition to doing the work that her office of Miss Finland required, Michaela has done modelling and charity. Michaela also dreams of working in the future with more performing arts. She still, however, has to complete her studies. She is currently studying media and communication as well as theatre, even though she is studying business economics.

In her spare time, Michaela loves to sing, dance, and horseback ride. She also coaches a national level junior dance team and sings classical opera arias. Her singing can be heard at retirement homes in which she volunteers, singing to elderly people.

Michael's heart is close to music and she has been in singing classes. Last year, the Steelers beauty queen was asked to sing a short sample of the song Miss Finland - race in the finals. However, Michael's dream is to represent Finland on an even larger stage, namely Eurovision Song Contest 2018.

Michaela said, “If I could represent Finland in Eurovision, I would like to make something go on stage and include wind machines and big hair.”

“I would like to be an actor for summer-theatre next summer, and music is also interesting. I was with my musician friend yesterday in the studio. He had made a new song and he suggested singing it as a duet,” Added the beauty queen.

Eurovision is an international song competition held primarily among the member countries of the European Broadcasting Union. Each participating country submits an original song to be performed on live television and radio, then casts votes for the other countries' songs to determine the winner. Over 40 countries are currently eligible to compete and since 2015 Australia has been allowed as a guest entrant.

Based on the Sanremo Music Festival held in Italy since 1951, Eurovision has been broadcast every year since its inauguration in 1956, making it the longest-running annual international television contest and one of the world's longest-running television programmes. It is also one of the most watched non-sporting events.
