Sanna Marin is about making history, as she is about becoming the world’s youngest and Finland Prime Minister at just 34.

The 34-year-old Transport Minister, Sanna Marin, will also become the Prime Minister of Finland and youngest-ever when she is sworn in later today.

On Sunday, Marin narrowly won a vote among Social Democrat lawmakers, according to Reuters, and replaces outgoing Prime Minister Antti Rinne, who resigned on Tuesday after coalition partner the Centre Party said it had lost confidence in him over his handling of a postal workers’ strike, CNN reports.

According to the report by Reuters, the prime minister-elect told reporters that she has “a lot of work ahead to rebuild trust,” according to Reuters.

“I have never thought about my age or gender, I think of the reasons I got into politics and those things for which we have won the trust of the electorate,” the Agence France-Presse news agency reported her as saying.

Sanna Marin rose through the ranks after leading the city council of her industrial hometown Tampere when she was 27, according to Reuters.

The Social Democrats are the largest party in a five-member governing coalition, according to Reuters. Marin took the top spot after beating the head of the party’s parliamentary group, Antti Lindtman.

Sanna Marin is not the only world leader in her 30s, though: Ukranian premier Oleksiy Honcharuk is 35 and New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is 39.

The five major parties in Finland’s parliament are now all led by women, four of whom are in their 30s: Li Andersson, 32, is the leader of the Left Alliance; Maria Ohisalo, 34, leads the Green League; the Centre Party is led by Katri Kulmuni, 32; and Anna-Maja Henriksson, 55, is leader of the Swedish People’s Party of Finland.
