‘In a world where death is the hunter, my friend, there is no time for regrets or doubts. There is only time for decisions.’

My name is Angel. No, I am not an actual angel, and yes, I am Spanish. But also, Italian. Oh, and I also grew up in Luxembourg. This year, I will be the Vice-President of ESN The Netherlands for 2019/2020. Besides that, I am a psychology student in the beautiful city of Leiden, where I have been living for the past 2 years.

I decided to join the national level this year because ESN is home for me. I appreciate to an unimaginable level international environments where new ideas can thrive in a setting of open communication, respect and acceptance of what makes us unique. I deeply and strongly believe that each of us has incredible potential, just waiting to be unleashed through finding our passions, and my goal this year is to help everyone as much as possible to find this inner motivation (and redirect it towards ESN). I intend to do so through improving all the national events that are to come by trying to apply the principles that facilitate a “flow” experience. The idea (very grossly) is to ensure that every moment we spend together is used to its maximum potential, in such a way that it will allow us to thrive and grow as much as possible.

Other than that, I want to create an HR plan for our organization and work together with the sections to help them in all HR related troubles, including recruitment and maintaining volunteer motivation.
