Oles Datsko
Senior Campaign Manager
Reaktor, Finland
Graduated in 2020

While looking for a programme along the lines of journalism and information, Oles discovered the ICE programme. Since he had a very practical base from his previous studies in journalism, he particularly enjoyed the academic character of the programme.

The experience of living and studying abroad as well as the diverse group of people the programme attracts were highly inspiring for Oles. The programme allowed him to expand his worldview, especially because he learned as much from his classmates as he learned in the courses. His focus on communication during his studies led to his thesis topic on Russian propaganda, examining the language used in Russian media to frame Ukrainians as enemies. He is working in Helsinki as Senior Campaign Manager at Reaktor.
