Our YouTube channel is now handled by 11 young Finnish YouTube talents!
As far as we know, Finland is the first country in the world to give its country image videochannel to ordinary citizens. Our #proudtubeFIN youth will be youtubing about lifestyle, cooking, outdoor activities, fishing, challenges, electronic dance music, beauty, crafting, pranks… And don’t worry if you don’t understand any of the earlier videos they posted, they will switch their language into English in thisisFINLANDtube.
Watch the video of our #proudtubeFIN stars:
Now, get to know them one by one:
14 year-old Helmi posts about her teenage life in Turku. We will see videos about her daily routines, make-up, healthy food and maybe some dubsmashes too. See what Helmi is about in her own channel Helmi Matilda. Photo: Vesa Laitinen
22-year-old Helsinkian, Roni has a solid fan base in his own YouTube channel RoniTheGamer. He is mainly vlogging about games and his opinions to various issues. Currently Roni is vlogging in Finnish but we will definitely be hearing excellent English in his ThisisFINLANDtube videos as he studies English language in the University of Helsinki.
