I decided to study law because I wanted to learn something concrete that could benefit the people around me. Human rights and environmental issues are the closest to my heart.

“Taxes are important. I pay my taxes happily and urge you to do the same. However, there are some groups in the society, especially among the self-employed, who statistically earn very little. They also often end up paying too much taxes, because their taxation is a lot more complicated than those working in steady jobs. I can help you with your tax return and teach you good practices and principles for personal accounting, so that next year you’ll be able to do it yourself.” – Riikka Kuoppala
