Behind My Salmiakki Life stands me, Lubica Vysna.

I had moved to Finland with my family from Slovakia in autumn 2016. For a while, I have been writing a blog for Slovak readers. At the beginning of 2021, I decided to write more in English, because I have realized that writing might truly be an empowering process.

It took a few more months of thinking and re-thinking of how to shape the positive impact of writing together. And this page is the result.

I am a social worker by education with many different interests, starting with feminism and empowerment of women and girls on one hand and how to make the best cupcakes for my children on the other.

One part of my identity is also about being an immigrant woman in Finland. This page is my personal investment into establishing the connection between different nationalities and ethnic groups living in Finland and to help in recognition of our capabilities.

If you would like to know me a bit better, welcome to check this web page. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions, comments or recommendations for the content creation. I will do my best to let our stories be heard…

Yours, Lubica
