Educational pathway

Master in Social and Cultural Anthropology at Tallinn University, Estonia. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree for Åbo Akademi University, majoring in folklore and minoring in italian. These subjects are relevant because cultural studies, such as folklore, helps in developing an understanding of others, while italian shows my knowledge of that culture and language.
