Bill Couch, Foreign Affairs Officer, shares with Mastering Finland his experiences of working at the US Embassy in Helsinki — from perks and daily routines to the challenges (and new engagement avenues) that the pandemic has brought. The Russia-Ukraine war and Putin’s leadership style are also on the discussion table.

What’s more, Bill discusses his fantastic career change from education into Public Affairs. It’s quite an inspiring story about “taking that chance”.
