Jérôme Favre was born in Geneva, Switzerland. He is currently preparing a Master's degree in International Studies at the University of Aarhus, Denmark. He has just started his internship at the UArctic International Secretariat as part of the Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education funding of the north2north mobility program.

He decided to do his internship at UArctic because he is interested in geopolitics and environment studies in the Arctic. During various trips to Norway, Finland, Denmark and Canada, he became passionate about the North, particularly through photography, which he has been practising for several years. He is very excited to spend the next five months in Lapland where he will be able to learn more about Suomi (Finnish) culture and enjoy the beautiful nature.
