PRES, President

As our chapter’s President, I want to make this year an amazing year for our members.

We will focus on impactful projects and quality events, giving our members chances to network and have fun!

In “real life” I work as a business intelligence consultant.

DP, Deputy President

I’m this year’s deputy president, so my goal is to support Niilo and try to to develop as a leader to become the president of 2023.

I’ve been a member of JCI since 2016 and I have loved it so far! For me the best parts of JCI are networking and constant development opportunities.

Aside from JCI I work in an insurance company leading and organizing our B2C outbound sales functions.

SECY, Secretary

Heimoi!

I am the quirky type who just loves everything related to administration and I enjoy my life when things that are in order! Well, at least most of the time… 🙈

I’m also eager to be involved in the board work and I want to work towards developing our chapter and making sure our members get full value out of this hobby and find the opportunities that interest them!

This hobby has given me so much and I love how one can always find new ways of “hobbying” at JCI: The first year I was deeply involved in a big project. Next, I became obsessed about trainings and attended around 50 JCI trainings during one year! I’ve gone through the leadership development (aka presidential) path and been involved in a huge international project (JCI European Academy), so I can’t wait to see what comes next!

I truly can attest to the saying that “JCI is like a buffet where you can choose what you want to take”! 😍

INT, International

I’m Deepika Sundresh and I’m on the board this year as International Officer (INT).

I joined JCI United in 2020, and it has been an amazing decision so far! Last year I was the Local Information Officer (LIO) and saw firsthand how international organizations work.
My goal this year is to network, help collaborate with international projects, and of course learn along the way!

In my non-JCI life, I race towards completing my thesis at the university 😄

LOM, Local Organisation Member

Hi, I’m Thu Khong and I’m Local Organization Member (LOM) of JCI United this year.

I joined JCI since 2022 and have been enjoyed it so far. I like the way we learn, we grow and have fun at JCI. Therefore, I want to contribute my best as well as getting the most out of JCI by doing the Board work.

As a LOM, I will coordinate with our Board and our members to organize events. My main goal is to make sure the planned events are executed successfully.

Beside JCI hobby, I also enjoy reading, travelling and spending time in the Finnish forest. Apart from JCI life, I’m working as Global Supply Chain Analyst for a mining company located in Lempäälä, Finland.
