‘The answer to any problem is an Excel spreadsheet.’

Hi everyone, 

My name is Janna and I will be the Treasurer of ESN The Netherlands for 2019/2020.

I am 24 years old and was born and raised in The Netherlands. During my bachelor’s of North American studies, I went on exchange to Albany, in the state of New York. After I came home, I wanted to be more involved with international students and this is how I found ESN. During my masters I volunteered at ESN Utrecht. About a year ago I finished my masters of Global Criminology in the beautiful city of Utrecht. Because I felt like there was so much more to learn at ESN I decided to do a local board year as Partnership Manager.

A year later I could still not say goodbye to ESN, which is why I decided to join the national board. Ready to learn something completely new as Treasurer. 

As the Treasurer I am responsible for all the finances within ESN The Netherlands. I will make sure that all invoices are sent to partners, that our bills are paid, and that we stick to our annual budget. For me it is a sport to do as much as possible, that benefits the international students and the organization, with the (limited) resources that we have. 

I hope that you quickly feel at home in this awesome country and that you will enjoy your time here to the fullest!
