Gratitude that on the way to my dreams I have a strong support network around me - family, friends, miss sisters, the Miss Finland organization, partners and all of you who have cheered or congratulated me during this journey.”

“Last night I didn't sleep for more than a couple of funny hours, but that doesn't matter - this is where it starts; a journey lasting a year, or actually a lifetime. Thank You. I am your Miss Finland”, she added.
