JCI Finland treated us to an unforgettable European Congress – 250 Jaycees and 30 LOMs were involved in its organization! They showed us their homes, prepared fresh Finnish food and taught us that saunas are great for every
occasion – be it to celebrate a victory, to relax after a long day, or to talk business with young professionals from all over Europe. There are too many highlights to list them all but the entire event was a reminder that with JCI, you do things you’d likely never do otherwise – for example, shaking hands with the former US Ambassador to Finland Bruce Oreck after his inspirational and extremely well-delivered speech. Another personal highlight and step out of my comfort zone was German Debating (our team got third place, thank you for asking), with the help of a supportive audience and engaging competitors with a great sense of humor. We’re excited for #ec2017basel already!
