I was born in Tampere, Finland in 1993, and my journey into the world of performance began at the age of 4 when I started learning gymnastics. Over the course of 6 years, I dedicated myself to Artistic Gymnastics, followed by 6 years of Aesthetic Group Gymnastics. It was during this time that I joined Sorin Sirkus, a youth circus, which exposed me to various circus disciplines. However, it was the allure of handstands, contortion, and aerial hoop that truly captured my heart. From 2009 to 2012, I was an integral part of the Sorin Sirkus performing group, honing my skills and expanding my repertoire.
In 2010, I embarked on a journey with my duo partner, Milla Peijari, training in contortion and aerial hoop. Together, we participated in Finland's Got Talent in 2012, where we showcased our talent and reached the finals. Since then, we have performed professionally as Duo Minja, captivating audiences not only in Finland but also on international stages.
While excelling as a duo performer, I also dedicated significant time to training in other disciplines as a soloist. As my career progressed, I continued to expand my skill set, delving into new disciplines. Since 2013, I have had the privilege of performing with a wide range of skills and talents, captivating audiences across the globe. My passion for growth and versatility drives me to constantly learn new skills and disciplines, ensuring that I am always evolving as a performer.


Drawing upon my extensive background in gymnastics, I have discovered a captivating fusion of powerful acrobatics, flexibility, and entertainment. The amalgamation of fluid movements, captivating stage presence, and the perfect balance of flexibility and technique defines my artistic expression. As an entertainer at heart, I thrive on captivating audiences and my style leans towards a more commercial appeal. This dynamic combination allows me to bring joy, excitement, and entertainment to audiences of all kinds.
This is the essence of who I am as a performer.
