Porträtt av Kamilla Sultanova

“Are we creating enough space for others in the Nordic Region?”

Through her own adventures and experiences from Herning in Denmark to Helsinki in Finland, and with her provocative stories, Kamilla Sultanova offers her vision of how we can succeed in having a good life here in the Nordic Region by creating space for others besides ourselves. In a way that is both entertaining and personal, she points out the differences and similarities between the happiest two countries in the world. Kamilla has spent many years finding her identity and has also been involved in conveying themes such as identity and dignity to Finnish young people by way of the NGO Global Dignity Finland.

Kamilla Sultanova grew up in Uzbekistan and has lived in the Nordic Region without her family for 20 years. She has therefore experienced the happiest countries in the world on her own, as a student, professional, entrepreneur, and now also as a mother. Although she was born and raised in Uzbekistan, she feels at home in both Denmark and Finland. Come and hear her vision for the future of Nordic identity.

The event will be held in Danish. The Danish Embassy is very kindly offering drinks. Admission is free, but please register by 23 September at info@danskklub.fi
