Hey! I'm Dan Gerdt, a 24 year old student who works at the same time.This is my third study year. I'm the type of person who likes to keep themselves really busy whether it is with work, school or voluntary work. Last year was one of the busiest years in my life being my first year at ky and i loved it, culture, people, everything about it. To me it is important that things get done, of course there is always room for error because you learn from that. My preference for areas of responsibility are Corporate relations and work and career.

As a member of the board, I would concentrate on the use of common resources, communication, and our great volunteers.

In Otaniemi, some know me for my love of KY and the Aalto community, while others know me as the communications coordinator for the School of Engineering. As a member of the KY Board, I would have the opportunity to apply all that I have learned to build a more sustainable and loving community.

I spent my first year at KY as an active member in NESU, further becoming an Economics tutor this fall and joining the board of Ky-Beppo. I had a blast volunteering, and continue to do so. I want to make a positive and lasting impact at KY by making a difference, be that through new and valuable perspectives or hard work.

When I’m not engaging in student life related activities, I like to arrange dinner get togethers with my friends, go for a morning swim or occasionally even further my academic goals.

My greatest aspiration in KY is to be part of the force that drives the community to be the best version of itself.

Hi everyone! I am Kerttu Lammi, a third-year Economics and second-year Chemical Engineering student. I was born in Vaasa but grew up in Budapest Hungary, and attended an international school there. KY has given so much to me, whether that is from a sub-committee or attending events, I wish to give some of that back. While KY is a vibrant student community, there is room for improvement. I would like to develop especially the following three areas: information channels, opportunities for international students, and inclusivity within KY. Therefore, my preferred areas of responsibility are Communications, Internationality, and Probba.

I believe that by combining the knowledge I have gathered from my experiences and my great enthusiasm, I can make a meaningful contribution to the dynamic community at KY. *Note, that this application was submitted after the preliminary deadline.
