Why have you joined AMP? I want women's hockey to grow and develop, and I think international co-operation, development of women's hockey in all current and new countries as well as establishing a women's pro hockey league is important for the future of women's ice hockey. Even though I've been with the Finnish National team for several years, I think especially my last season living and playing abroad made me think ice hockey in a wider perspective.
