Ambassador Facundo Vila met young Argentine Catalina Villena from Tierra del Fuego at the Embassy. Catalina has spent the past school year on a cultural exchange in northern Finland living in a Finnish family and going to a local school as part of an exchange student program of the international organisations AFS.
Before finishing her exchange year Catalina came by at the Embassy to greet the personnel and meet with the Ambassador.
While she is excited to see her family and friends again at home, Catalina says she is sad to leave her new family and friends in Finland.
During her exchange year she has been missing the Argentine smiles and hugs and from Finland she says she will miss the purity, silence and Finnish language.
We wish her a safe trip back home!
