Started drifting: I had been driving ice track for a few years and dreamed of a drifting car all the time. Finally in September 2011, I bought a Toyota Soarer and was able to start drifting for real.
Home away from home: In my car, listening to good music with my friends.
Greatest career achievement so far: Drifting at the Ahvenisto racetrack even though my leg was broken and I couldn’t walk. Every time I put my helmet on and get into my car, I’m the happiest girl in the world.
First trick you were really proud of: Learning to use the hydraulic handbrake.
What are you known for?: I’m known for my positive attitude. I’m also the first female drifting driver in Finland.

Your idols: Everyone who has enough courage to follow their dreams.
Best advice you ever got: A quitter never wins, so don’t give up!
Favorite music: Music is a very important thing in my life. I mostly listen to rock, punk rock and punk – bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Rise Against and AC/DC.
The most beautiful thing in the world: A perfect summer day and a powerful drifting car, driven with skill.
Ideal drifting destination: Racetracks in the USA or Japan.
Sweet or sour? Sweeeet!
Your biggest treasure: My friends and my family. And of course my cars, a Toyota Soarer and an Opel Manta A.
