looks like I’m the next in line with a self-bio about myself so here we go.My name is Jessica Blechingberg. I’m a first year BBA student here at Arcada – University of Applied Sciences (External link)
and I have really enjoyed my time here.
It has been a very fun time and learning to be a part of the Arcada Entrepreneurship Society (External link) from the beginning. One of the greatest experiences from last fall was the start-up conference, Slush (External link) that we went to in November. It was really a one-of-a-kind experience. You all should definitely go next year.
So what do I do when I am not in school?
Besides my studies I work at MARIMEKKO (External link) and I absolutely love it. I have a very huge passion and interest in Finnish fashion and design brands and I am so glad to be a part of Marimekko. I also have a passion for photographing, have a look at my Tumblr here http://beyondhelsinki.tumblr.com/ (External link)
AES is a great way to meet other Arcada students than your fellow BBA, nursing, engineering, media culture, plastics technology and so on friends. Our Kickoff was a huge success and a proof of what happens when like-minded people starts discussing with each other. There’s obviously nothing such as ‘awkward silence’ when people have a passion for something and wants to share their ideas and thoughts with others. I am so happy so many of you came.
Our next BIG event is going to be on the 5th of February. You don’t want to miss that so make sure to come.
See you around and if there’s anything, please feel free to ask!
