President Iita Räsänen
Who are you? I’m Iita and I study social sciences from political science to public policy. This is my third year in JyYK and this year I’m the president of the board.
Why are you in JyYK? I think it’s nice to be a part of an association while studying. JyYK has values like sustainable development and peace which are easy to agree on.
What are you involved in JyYK? As a president my most important tasks are holding the meetings and representing our association. I also plan our action, write agendas for the meetings, apply the grants, keep in touch with other local UN associations and organize events with other board members.
What do you want to change? I would like to see the world where people wouldn’t make any assumptions about others based on how they look.
