Couldn't have done this without you!
Updated: Jul 6
I am so grateful for this opportunity! It's crazy how life tends to unfold. Have courage, be active and work hard! By doing these, you have a path towards your passion. Your dreams are up to you. Will you make them possible?
My journey started when I first posted a video of the painting process on TikTok. I started with Sauli Niinistö – the current President of Finland. My account completely exploded. During the following days I gained tons of new followers and on 14.2 I had over 5K. It might seem small, but for me it meant the world.<3
After posting more videos about it, a journalist from Ilta-Sanomat spotted me and approached with a request: If they could interview me. I was shocked!
How, What, When! With all these questions buzzing in my mind, I think my heart stopped beating for a couple of seconds.
This really truly was a wholesome experience and I'm so honoured to have been given the chance. But the thing is, I had help from you guys! My supporters of which I'm proud of. YOU mean the world to me!
So, THANK YOU <3
I still have a lot to learn.
I repainted them so many times up to a point where I almost started crying due to frustration - they still weren’t good enough. But I didn’t give in. The outcome isn’t perfect, but I wash my brushes happily, as it is better than where I started. With every brush stroke you get better. Just remember to give yourself time.
Plus, life would be boring without difficulties! Just Like the saying goes: none of us can afford to be complacent. Humans are always on the move, developing. Love the grind and work hard! Dreams are not impossible.
