What else?

Niina is passionate about things that promote well-being. She enjoys (ice-)swimming, exotic and the familiar Finnish sauna culture, films and ballgames, both as a participant and a spectator. She loves walking and hiking, canoeing on the sea or just chilling out on a picnic. Niina is also a museums enthusiast and believes that in the future more and more art experiences will be interactive.
