Mustapha Ceesay, Chair
Mustapha, 24, a politics and communications student, a master’s freshman next fall and this year’s chairperson of Kannunvalajat. I memorise books for fun and I’m also a “basic gym dude”. 2021 is likely to be my final year as an active player in student organizations and it is an honour to end my student organization career as chairperson of the Kannunvalajat.
Sakari Pirkkalainen, Study Affairs
Hi! I’m Sakari and on this exceptional year I’m conducting student advocacy here in Kannu. I’m a second year student in societal change. Long runs, Nietzsche and jaloviina have brought summit experiences in these outré times.
Matias Kivipuro, Study Affairs and Equality
I am Matias, this year’s equality representative and one of our two study affairs representatives for Kannunvalajat. I am also a student member in the steering group for the bachelor program of social research so my time is full of study affairs. I have started my studies about three years ago in economics but this autumn I switched over to social research. My hobbies include cooking and lately I’ve even started reading books again. Hope we can meet soon!

Hi! My name is Aapo and I am the treasurer of the Kannunvalajat board. I’m a first year student in the bachelors programme in economics. In my free time I greatly enjoy reading all kinds of books regardless of the genre and singing, especially a capella singing in vocal groups. I like to challenge myself daily to step out of my comfort zone via various means like cold showers and eating stupid hot chili sauces. Hopefully we’ll meet during the year!
Sanna Pellinen, Environment and Work life
Hi! I’m Sanna, first year social science student.This year I will be Kannu’s worklife and environmental coordinator. I dream about moving to a house that has large tree in front of my window so I could watch the birds eating on the bird feeder 🙂
