Today I want to share with you one exciting Social Media project I’ve been working on recently ?
It’s called “Finland (the) Nordic Star”. If you are guessing this project is something about Finland, you are correct ?
The mission of this project is to promote my beloved country Finland and its everything – culture, people, society, cuisine, customs you name it. Not only the good, but also the bad and the ugly – from the eyes of an outsider so to say.
Why am I taking my time to do this project?
I first came to Finland from Vietnam 5 years ago. you can imagine how different Finland is from my home country! 5 years may not a long period, but certainly long enough for me to experience and become affectionate about this country. It’s been quite a ride for me with so many ups and downs, and overall an emotional journey I would never forget ?
I realize that as a foreigner who doesn’t speak and understand Finnish, I have missed out on a ton of opportunities to learn more about Finland ?. How can you love something if you know little about it? And how can you integrate into a new society without loving it? ???
That inspires me to get going with “Finland Nordic Star” – to simply help people like me get to know a little bit more about this incredible Nordic country. I started on Instagram (@finlandnordicstar) since it is the best place to share creative contents and reach out to a massive audience. So far the account has acquired around 3,500 followers ?
There is also a Facebook Fan Page, but for now Instagram will be the primary playing field ? since different social platforms require different contents and growth tactics while I’m in short of resources.
Of course, I’m not the only one in this project. Awesome contents and original stories are produced by my teammates Tuan Le and Ngoc Nguyen. Thumb-up for their massive effort ???
Last but not least, if you also love Finland, support us by following our Instagram and inviting your friends to follow us! We’ll push out fresh contents on a regular basis ?
Oh and we’re constantly looking for new, interesting contents about Finland, so if you have something fun or even dark, don’t hesitate to share with us so we can share it to the world!
