Board Members 2023
Migration, media and intercultural communication I consider to be my strong side. I am true integrationist and aim to mediate between fellow immigrants and the host society. Travelling, campfire and hiking is my passion. In painful times, I tend to write poems. Being chosen as a chair in SKY, I aim to facilitate societal initiatives and work together with the team to increase inter-personal / inter-ethnic contacts for the benefit of the cohesive & inclusive society.
Münevver Sahinkaya Ayyıldız
I am from Turkey and currently living in Helsinki. I’m a biologist and interested in nature, environment and science. I like learning and getting to know different cultures. In SKY, my aim is to know cross-cultural issues and contribute to the “culture of living together”.
I am Gulten, a newcomer to Finland and resident in Tampere. I am Biology teacher. I was also an activist in my country of origin, helping minority groups and individuals who were lonely and victimized for various reasons and tried to provide humanitarian support. My reason for joining the SKY working group is to meet new people, get to know more customs and traditions, engage in dialogue activities and improve my skills and capacity. In community spirit, I believe I can reach more then I would alone.
Muutin Suomeen vuonna 2018. Nyt olen opiskelija Helsingin yliopiston Suomen kielen ja kulttuurin kandiohjelmassa. Haluan osallistua yhteiskuntaan tekemällä hyödyllisiä projekteja. Minun mielestäni kun ihmiset, jotka ajattelevat eri tavalla, tuntevat ja kunnioittavat toisiaan, se tekee meistä paremman yhteiskunnan, siksi meille tarvitsee enemmän dialogia.
