Two women from different background who live in Helsinki, Finland are the authors of this website/blog. Dana is an Israeli-Finn, a graduate of Social Science studies and Social Studies. Nowadays, she has a multicultural family of her own which includes the Israeli, Finnish and the fascinating East Africa culture. Emine is from Turkey and has been living in Finland with her family for three years. She has a Master's degree in International Relations and wants to continue her academic studies in Finland. At the same time, she continues her voluntary work.
In This Project, Families in Finland Tell Their Experiences as Having More than One Culture at Home.

In this project, I want to open my world to others who suffer from being new in their community or country. I hope it will bring encouragement to others as I share my stories and thoughts. This project is also a heritage from me to my children who don't have roots in Finland, from their home country.
For Finnish people, it’s normal to drink around eight to ten cups of coffee a day
