Finland-Valkeakoski, Where Extreme Sports Are A Lifestyle!

This is an article about the town of Valkeakoski in Finland where I spent an exchange semester during my junior year in college.  "I never thought that I would actually end up in Finland one day, but here I am having an exchange semester and having the time of my life. At first, Valkeakoski might seem as not that much fun, it is a rather small town with no actual mall and covered in snow for about half of the year.

As part of the Professional Journalism Shadowing Program at K2.0 in the human rights department, I wrote a Q&A article that tackles the rich culture of Roma minority and elaborates on the discrimination this ethnic minority group faces around Europe. The interviewee is, Evelyne Pommerat, the director of Matéo Maximoff Media Library  a library about Gypsy studies in Paris, France. During the interview Evelyne also claims "This was a major form of discrimination, especially considering that it happened in France, which is supposed to be the country of human rights", when talking about legal discrimination of Gypsies in France.
