Mina`s book, film and music favourites
My name is Mina and I’m a 22 years old. I’m studying to become a primary school teacher. This summer I will be working at Point library for two months. I’m very social and I like to spend most of my spare time among other people. My father is Iranian and my mother is Finnish, so if you see me at the library, you can come greet me in English, Persian or Finnish. I’m interested in societal and cultural topics, which stems from my multicultural background. These interests are reflected in my reading hint list.
This summer has started off great and I’ve learned so many new things each day. I believe that libraries are one of the city’s best services and everyone should take advantage of the assets that libraries offer. During this summer I’ve gotten surprised by how diverse the library services are. I can’t wait to see what else this summer has in store!
