Alina Heywood


I am a half English, half Finnish 19 year old deputy member of Turku City Council in the Green Party. At the moment, I am a Vice Chairman of The Union of Local Youth Councils in Finland and I am also a Chairman of Turku Green Youth.

I was born in Turku, but I lived the first 10 years of my life in Manchester, England. For the last eight years, I have been living in Turku and studying at Turku International School. Last summer, I graduated from the International Baccalaureate Programme.

At the moment, I am taking a gap year and I plan to apply to study Politics in Finnish at the University of Turku.
