My Career: From Start to Finnish
Pouria from Iran values the independence to learn while working
Pouria Kay, Iran. Design manager/entrepreneur
“This is Finland – you can!”
I got accepted to an international design business management master’s programme, which gave me the opportunity to work on something that I love.
the independence to learn and the space to experiment and grow (fast).
My favouritething about Finland is… first, it’s safe and peaceful; second, its fresh water and clean environment; and third, that you can be yourself no matter who you are.
I found a problem to be solved, and I set up a company to try and solve that problem. This is Finland – you can!
when you come here from a different culture, it is a process to understand why things are the way they are. The key is to be open from the outset and try to adapt to your new environment. Otherwise, it is easy to start criticising how things are different.
