“Fun in Finland,” Tambuli, Sept. 1993, 48
What do you do for fun in Finland? If you’re like twelve-year-old Laura Alakoski, you’d probably bake, ski, read, sew, or play music.
At home, Laura makes cakes, cookies, and elaborate gingerbread houses. She also knits, crochets, and makes clothes from her own patterns. She’s involved in downhill and cross-country skiing, biking, and ice skating.
Musically, she loves playing piano and was called to be the Primary pianist at age 11. Now she accompanies her ward during sacrament meeting. There aren’t many LDS young people around, but Laura is good at making friends everywhere.
