Elin Qvist, 19, was crowned as Saint Lucia, the light bringer, the symbol of joy, the one who gives a helping hand for those in need.
Qvist, who has always dreamed of becoming Lucia, received her crown of candles at the Helsinki Cathedral on Thursday evening—on Lucia’s Day.
Qvist comes from Kauniainen, a small but wealthy town in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area.
In December-January, Lucia will make nearly 100 visits, from hospitals to nursing homes.
For the following months, she is here to remind us that we can help those in need.
