Early Life

Sanna Mirella Marin was born in Finland’s capital city Helsinki on November 16, 1985. She and her family lived in various cities mainly Espoo and Pirkkala around the country before settled in the southern city of Tampere.

In Tampere, Marin was brought up in a same-sex family with her mother and her mother’s partner.

With a talk with a Finnish media in 2015, Marin described her family as a “rainbow family” and felt “invisible” because her family “weren’t recognized as a real family. She also added that for her everyone is equal and it’s not a matter of opinion. That’s the foundation for everything.

Sanna Marin is the first person in her family to study at the University of Tampere in the field of Administrative Sciences. She completed her graduation from Prikkala High School in 2004.

Sanna Marin Political Background: Professional Career

Sanna Marin entered the field of politics at the age of 17 and became MP at the age of 30 in 2015. Clearly, she has risen herself in top of the Finnish politics rapidly.

In 2006, Marin joined the Social Democratic Youth and served as its first Vice President from 2010 to 2012. And in 2014, she was elected second deputy chairperson of the party.

At the age of 27, she became head of the city council in Tampere in 2012. Just after 3 years, in 2015, she was elected as an MP for the Social Democrat party representing the region of Pirkanmaa. Four years later she was again re-elected and then became the Minister of Transport and Communications on June 6, 2019.

But how Sanna Marin got elected as a prime minister? What happened is like: The former prime minister of Finland Antti Rinne resigned on December 3, 2019 (Tuesday) after intense criticisms over the way he handled a postal strike. According to the Confederation of Finnish industries, the strike estimated a loss of about 500 million euros or USD 550 million.

This incident cleared the doors for Sanna Marin to take the top position after the Social Democratic party voted her to take Antti Rinne’s place on December 8, 2019 (Sunday).

During the press conference when she won the premiership, Marin told to reporters that “We have a lot of work ahead to rebuild trust.”

She also added that she never thought of her gender or age. She just thinks about the reasons that led her into the politics and the things she has won the trust of the electorate.
