I am Jasmin and I was the National Representative and PR Manager of 2016-2017.
I have been active in ESN since 2012 in my local section in beautiful and not-at-all boring Enschede. Starting out as a mentor, I felt I had to take a step further and became the president of ESN Twente. I loved the work within my section but also getting to know ESN as an actual network on national and international level.
My journey within the national board has been very exciting, because I represented ESN the Netherlands on the international level and I took over the PR tasks as well.
I was therefore the central communication point for information coming from the international level of ESN to the National board, our sections and vice versa. In the following months I will thus work closely together with the International Board and the other 38 National Representatives (“NRs”).
As NR I showed our ESNers and anyone interested in becoming an ESNer the benefits (and how much fun it is!) of being involved in international committees and projects, of participating in and organizing international events and what opportunities and tools are available for our local ESN sections and international students. Therefore, I was able to get many people excited for the Level UP meetings with me and the international committee.
In addition to the NR position, I was responsible for all the PR related activities of ESN NL. I was responsible for the social media accounts and I supported the local PR coordinators through the PR committee.
In addition, I took the portfolios Exchangeability and Responsible Party. I am very enthusiastic about both of the projects. Furthermore, I was responsible for the ESNSurvey.
I’d love to get to know you all and get you excited about the network as a whole!
