Short documentary/Lyhyt dokumentti November 2021

I and the journalist students from Tampere University collaborated together to create a short documentary on life with stuttering, in which I tell about my personal experience living as a stuttering person.

The documentary is available at moreenimedia, and the YouTube video is down below.

Tampere Yliopiston journalistiikan opiskelijoiden kanssa tekemä yhteisprojekti. Änkytys, osa elämääni on lyhyt dokumentti, jossa kerron elämäni änkytyksen kanssa, omasta kokemuksestani ja änkytys tarinastani.

Lyhyt dokumentti on katsottavissa moreenimedia verkkosivulla sekä alhaalta olevalta Youtube-videosta.

Anna-magazine spread/Anna-lehti aukeama September 2021

In the 36 week issues of Anna magazine, I got the opportunity to talk about my stuttering and the power of support in the “One of Us” section. It was a great honor and joy to be able to share my story, and I hope it will encourage others to be themselves just as they are.

The article is available to read here (in Finnish, but right-click and press Translate to English)

Anna-lehden 36 viikon numerossa, pääsin kertomaan änkytyksestäni ja sen vertaistuen voimasta ”Yksi meistä”-osiossa. Oli iso kunnia ja ilo päästä jakamaan tarinaani, ja toivon sen rohkaisevan muita olemaan oma itsensä juuri sellaisenaan kuin on.

Interview with Yle Radio/Haastattelu Yle Radiossa October 2020

I got the opportunity to be on the Finnish Oulu Region Radio morning broadcast in honor of international stuttering awareness day! During this broadcast, we talked about remote working and stuttering. How can employers be more accessible to their stuttering employees and tips on how to better communicate with people who have stutter.

Broadcast is availabe in Yle Areena Audio (in Finnish)

Sain mahdollisuuden päästä Yle Oulun aamu radioon puhumaan kansainvälisen änkytyspäivän kunniaksi etäpalavereista ja -tapaamisien yleistymisen vaikutuksesta änkytykseen sekä vinkkejä miten kanssa käydä änkyttävän henkilön kanssa.

Haastattelu on kuunneltavissa Yle Areena Audiosta

Stamily Work Meet Up To Raise Awareness April 2020

Stamily’s first official work meet up. In February at Prague we discussed further our association plans such as members of the board and future goals we want to achieve for the organisation. In this international cooperation
participants from Finland, Estonia, UK, Denmark, the Netherlands, Portugal and Iceland attended this official meeting.

I learned in this experience how to work together as a organisation with people from different cultural backgrounds and to maintain our goals to put them into action. During this work meet up we produced two videos to raise awareness about stuttering & Stamily. One was about the work trip in general, another what is it like to have a stammer. You can view these videos below.
