Anna and I met during our mandate as members of the European Apprentices Network. She has shown great interest and focus in the promotion of Apprenticeships and the protection of the apprentices’ rights. What impressed me the most in our cooperation was the passion she showed when dealing with such sensitive and complicated topics, her consistency when undertaking responsibilities and the integrity and substance of her opinion. She has been a great co-worker, an inspirational young voice and a well-promising personality.
Anna is pretty ace. We worked together at the European Apprentice Network, a collaborative European project to make sure decision makers hear and understand the voice of apprentices. Of course I could say lots of nice things about how expert Anna is in vocational policy and how good she was at working in a cross cultural team and navigating bureaucracy … It would all be true. Boring but true. What made me smile when I was working with Anna was her insistence in making things fairer. Fairer for people that decision makers and politicians often forget about. Electricians and bakers, young Finns and new Finns. I’d vote for a politician that says “lets stop talking shit and get shit done”
Apprentice Engagement Officer
Anna is a bright and hardworking woman, with great willpower and determination. When we worked together in the European Apprentices Network, Anna was always contributing with great knowledge and sincerity when it came to ensuring quality apprenticeships for every apprentice in the EU. I learned a lot from working with Anna, and I believe that she has what it takes to be an MEP. I fully support Anna’s candidacy, and I hope that you see the potential I see and that you give her your vote!
Former member of the European Apprentices Network
Working with Anna was such a pleasure back in the student days. She always had good sense for us coming from non-EU countries, supporting us in our higher education transition process. Her advices in policy work significantly improved work of Student Union of Serbia. I got familiar with Anna when we both were members of same working group. That study visit group visited in Azerbaijan when the national student union of Azerbaijan applied for member of European Student union and Anna was great team player!

Anna was an active member of the European Apprentices Network. Together with other members of the network, she made sure that the voice of young apprentices is heard in discussions related to VET, in particular for apprenticeships. Anna represented the Network on The Canada-EU dialogue on Employment, Social Affair and Decent Work in Ottawa, Canada. She helped create the seven key priorities the Network has identified for the years to come and encourages all stakeholders, particularly policymakers at all levels, to shape apprenticeship programmes on the basis of these priorities.
Board Member of the European Apprentices Network
Since October 18 I have the pleasure to call Anna a friend of mine. We meet during a meeting of the European Alliance for Apprenticeships in Tirana as members of the European Apprentice Netwok. The EAN is an organization that represents the voice of young people in terms of apprenticeships. We have meetings alongside the EAfA and develop our priorities and our action-plans there. The meeting in Tirana was my very first one and I was overwhelmed from the power and the enthusiasm of all participants. Anna and I worked together on a lot of different issues concerning apprenticeships all over Europe and how we can protect them from being abused as sheep labours.
I know Anna since then I appreciate her knowledge. In my opinion there could be no better member of the European Parliament.
