Board former (= chairperson) applicants

Milka-Maarika Salo

Hello everybody! I am Milka, a 4th-year Hiukkanen and a new candidate for the board former and the chairperson positions. I study chemistry as my major. Mathematics and possibly also physics are my minors. Next autumn I will also start my pedagogical studies. I’m originally from the countryside and nature is one of the things I sometimes miss while in Tampere. On my free time, I like to spend time at our guild room, hanging out with my friends, cooking and playing or trying different sports.

My “career” in the board of Hiukkanen started apparently in a very traditional way; an older active Hiukkanen came to me after the main party of the anniversary of Hiukkanen and said: “Hey Milka, you will apply to become the next hostess of Hiukkanen.” A short conversation followed though some on the details have been forgotten. From a very young age, I have learned to follow the orders of the elder and wiser, so in 2019 I was the hostess of Hiukkanen. I really liked working on the board and after being the hostess for a year I applied for the guild master’s position, where I have been working this year. Already at the beginning of the year 2020, I was thinking I might be interested in becoming the chairperson of Hiukkanen in the future. This year, besides the guild master’s jobs, I have been working as the vice-chairperson of Hiukkanen and helping the current chairman Matti. So I have become familiar with different kinds of important paperwork and applications already. Chairperson is the position I want to take on next year.

I consider myself social, easy to approach and precise. I am capable of telling my own opinions and yet interested in hearing other perspectives and different opinions. Hiukkanen has a place in my heart and I would like to be a part of those people continuing and developing our guild towards an even better and more open direction.
