Subscriber of the week

Elina Simonen, BEd primary student at University of Strathclyde (originally from Finland)

Why did you start subscribing to TESS?

I prefer magazines in a non-digital form. This might sound silly, but reading a magazine makes me feel I'm doing something important.

What do you read first?

I start from the last article then return to the beginning - something I've done since childhood.

What should there be more of in TESS?

Celebration and some more discussion of arts and multiculturalism.

Who would you like to see writing in TESS?

University students.

What's the best thing we've done?

Oh, this is hard. Probably just existing - so far everything in TESS has been exciting to me.

What would you be excited to see on the front page?

Something beautiful. I'm very fond of arts and do a lot of painting; it would be lovely to see works by Scotland's pupils.
