Fresh PR Power!

New city, new apartment, new people, new friends, new experiences and so on. The list of all the new things I have faced during the past week is endless. This list also includes a new job and in case you haven’t figured it out yet I’m the new PR Coordinator here at INTERNeX!


And who am I? My name is Jasmin, I’m 22 years old and I come from this quite cold yet beautiful country called Finland. I am studying International Business and this internship in Vancouver will be the last part of my studies. This is my second time living abroad since I completed one semester of studies last summer in Berlin. I’m also a dance teacher and a dog groomer, not that it would have anything to do with my job as a PR Coordinator, but just wanted to let you know in case you are in need of any hip hop moves (or a hair cut).

So what does my job here at INTERNeX actually include? Besides having fun and getting to know all of you a big part of it will be organizing PuB NiGHTs, weekly events and monthly trips and also updating this blog about all of that. There are so many great things coming up and I can’t wait to tell you guys more about them. Stay tuned!

I am super duper excited for the summer. Exploring Canada, going on adventures and getting a lot of new friends, what else can a person wish for?

Come say hi tomorrow @131Water- It’s PuB NiGHT time!

Women’s Gold Medal Game

Canada captured a third consecutive Olympic women’s ice hockey title on Thursday, defeating arch-rival United States 2-0 in an emotional championship match on home ice. Marie-Philip Poulin scored twice in the first period and goaltender Shannon Szabados made 28 saves to bring Canada the victory and bragging rights in a border war arch-rivalry between the sport’s only two women’s powers. The Americans, two-time reigning world champions, settled for a silver medal while Finland took bronze with an earlier 3-2 overtime triumph over Sweden.

“We have no excuses. They played well,” US coach Mark Johnson said. “Their young goaltender played well. She didn’t give us many second opportunities. She came in with the pressure of a nation on her and she never cracked. Szabados surrendered only one goal while making 50 saves in Canada’s undefeated run to gold. “She was awesome,” Canada’s Gillian Apps said. “She was amazing – no other words to describe it.”

The Americans had hoped to spoil Canada’s party on home ice as the Canadians had done to them in Salt Lake City in 2002, but now they must wait until Sochi for another chance at Olympic revenge. Better luck next time US!
