I’m Anni Ahola, the chair of CIA for the next year! I was born in Helsinki, but I moved here to Finland’s Paris (Turku) to study. I’m 24 years old and I’m studying international business.

I got to spend the last year as the art & communication coordinator of CIA, and I had an amazing time. We got to meet people from all over the world and throw some amazing events. The best part of it was to work with the amazing board that we had! The laughs in Tallinn trip chaos, all the meal preps at sitz parties, Cottage weekend kitchen talks, and the weekly meetings are things I’m not going to forget. Now I’m closer to these people that I could’ve imagined a year ago.

This year is almost gone, but I’m lucky to get to do this all over again. With the future CIA we are going to organize new and traditional events for Finnish and international students. We have a lot of cool and some new things coming up for next year, and I’m super excited. In CIA you get to meet new people and our amazing alumni, throw events and sitz parties, travel outside of Turku with a bus full of Finnish and international students.

I’m looking forward to next year, and very excited to meet CIAs new board! We have a fun year ahead of us!
