INTEGRATION COORDINATOR: My name is Maxime. I am currently studying political science with a minor in conflict studies. After high school I decided it was time to spread my wings and ended up studying in America for a year. This was probably the best decision of my life, as will hopefully also be the case for your decisions to come here. As your Integration Coordinator I hope I can provide you with long lasting friendships that will make you want to travel back to the lowlands plenty of times. Let’s make your stay memorable!
INTRODUCTION COORDINATOR: My name is Joshua de Groot, 22 years old and I’m the new Introduction Coordinator of ISN Amsterdam. It is my job to get you started in experiencing what might very well be the time of your life. And I'm not just saying that, I know what I’m talking about! I’ve spent my time abroad in Barcelona and enjoyed every moment of my stay there. I’m happy to inform you that you’ve ended up in a great city yourself! Here you will experience a new culture, see amazing things, party hard, and above all, make new long-life friends and memories. Make the most of it, and I’ll see you around!
INTRODUCTION COORDINATOR: My name is Karin, I am 22 years old and studying at the HVA to become an economics teacher. I am going to be one of the Introduction Coordinators this year, and I hope that Joshua and I can make the start of your exchange in Amsterdam unforgettable. As somebody from outsite Amsterdam I know how it feels to fall in love with the city, and I hope you can also experience this feeling! I hope to meet you all soon at our ‘borrels’ and events to get to know you and your backgrounds more.
ACTIVITIES COORDINATOR: My name is Lydia. I am a musicology student at the UvA. I will be the activities coordinator this year. I am very excited to provide you with fun events and trips that will make your exchange period extra memorable. I did an Erasmus semester in Northern Ireland. This was an awesome experience, because of the great people I met and all the fun events organized for international students. I hope you also have an awesome experience here in Amsterdam and that ISN can contribute to this.
PR & FUNDING COORDINATOR: My name’s Marley Hasselbach and I’m a third year student focusing on communication at Amsterdam University College. I recently returned from an exchange program in Hong Kong, and am excited about bringing some Asian energy and creativity to the new board! As PR & Funding Coordinator, it will be my goal to promote ISN to the outside world, and also to bring in funds to make our events even more of a success. All to your benefit, of course!
