Humans of Northwood: Joona Havia ’20


I am Joona Havia, and I am a soccer player from Helsinki, Finland. My favorite things about Northwood are my friends and soccer…but soccer comes first. I think the biggest difference between living in Finland and the United States is the people and the food. I can’t really describe how the people are different, but as for the food, American food is just so less healthy in general. I do love American hamburgers, though. Yummy! My favorite subject in school this year is English because I love to improve my English vocabulary. When I get older, I want to be a professional soccer player, but if that doesn’t work out, then I want to become a personal trainer. But for right now, I am a happy center back for Black Rock FC at Northwood School.
