On October 22nd, Finest Future hosted a unique event, combining a screening of the well-known TV game show “Amazing Race Suomi” with a press conference where participants shared insights. “Amazing Race Suomi” is the Finnish version of the globally acclaimed adventure game show, “The Amazing Race.”
This edition of The Amazing Race Finland starred Peter Vesterbacka, co-founder of Finest Future, and Anna Nguyen Anh Thy, a Vietnamese international student attending high school in Finland through Finest Future’s educational program.
The event aimed to share enriching experiences that Vietnamese youths can expect when studying in Finland. Thanks to its vast network of partners, Finest Future offers outstanding services and opportunities for international students, ensuring a top-notch education and the chance to engage in diverse adventures and projects. This approach significantly enhances their academic journey, broadens their experiences, and promotes a globally oriented mindset.
Held at the New World Hotel Saigon in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, the special occasion featured appearances by H’Hen Niê, Miss Universe Vietnam, and MC Khánh Vy, a well-known television personality from VTV, alongside other distinguished guests.
Interestingly, this venue was also the chosen accommodation by the Amazing Race film crew in July when they were shooting episodes in Ho Chi Minh City, Anna’s hometown.
Peter Vesterbacka, Tuomas Tiilikainen, and Bambi Dang co-founded the Finest Future. Bambi, originally from Vietnam and now residing in Finland, was born into poverty in Nghe An and almost had to discontinue her education due to her family’s financial struggles.
Determined to follow her dreams, Bambi pursued her studies in Finland, where she not only built a successful career but also helped many young people worldwide, including those from Vietnam, access Finland’s high-quality education system.
Finest Future’s ambition is to establish Finland as the premier global destination for study abroad programs. It aims to empower individuals with a global perspective to come to Finland and create the “Finest Future” for themselves.
One of the goals of the event is to raise awareness and boost interactions between Finland and Vietnam in culture, tourism, and education. The year 2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Finland. The event is supported by the Finnish Embassy in Vietnam and the Vietnamese Embassy in Finland.
Finest Future warmly thanks everyone who joined the event on October 22nd to meet distinguished personalities and discover educational opportunities in Finland.
