A rigorous review process involving 31 reviewers from various Arctic-focused EU projects has selected 18 Arctic youth and early career professionals from 89 applicants for the Arctic PASSION Sharing Circle. Minetta is one of them, and here is a little more about her and her background, as written by Minetta. 

"Originating from Helsinki, I relocated to Tromsø three years ago to pursue a Master's degree in Visual Anthropology and immerse myself in backcountry skiing. Since I graduated summer 2022, I have been interning at the Arctic Council Secretariat. This September I will take up a new position as Administrative and Communications Advisor at the ACS, and I look forward to keep working on Arctic issues and deepening my knowledge and understanding about the region." - Minetta Westerlund
