Who am I?
[Teemu] Hey! Should I look at the camera or the microphone? Yeah, I'm Teemu
[Lucia] I'm Lucia
[Anssi] I'm Anssi
[Mojjammil] I'm Mojjammil
[Suvi] Hi, I'm Suvi
[Iida] My name is Iida Hokkanen
[offscreen] Okay, then you can tell me about Juhis
[Lucia] Hmm, Juhis is a great community builder and community developer
[Anssi] Juhis is one of the pioneers of community development here in Finland in the IT scene
[Iida] I think Juhis' strengths in building communities are his wide network and and also his encouraging nature
[Mojjammil] Even though I didn't get to know Juhis for very long time but for me he turned out to be someone I decided to look up to
[Suvi] He has been mentoring and coaching our startup teams in LaureaES for a few years now And every single time his workshops are the most liked of the whole program
[Lucia] The biggest strength of Juhis is his approachability
[Anssi] Juhis is the kind of person that works for long-term goals he's not there for an overnight success He truly loves what he's doing
[Iida] I'm also a subscriber of Juhis' newsletter and even though I don't always understand all the topics he writes about, I still read them because you can really feel the excitement through his texts and you get inspired yourself as well
[Teemu] When you look at the dictionary and open it up from the, like the word 'pöhinä' there's a picture of Juhis in there, that's for sure.
For a long time, I've struggled to write about myself or figuring out how to tell about me. Since I build communities and am active in different communities, I asked people from those communities to tell you instead.
