Introduction Coordinator & Vice president
Hello! My name is Karin, I'm 22 years old and one of the introduction coordinators from ISN. I'm taking care of the introduction for the newbies in January and August. That means that I'm looking for locations to party, dutch lessons and so on. Besides that, I'm also the vice president of ISN. My tasks are supporting the president and keeping in contact with the HvA. The best thing about being part of ISN is meeting a lot of international people, constantly learning and going to places where I normally would never go to (I went to the Zaanse Schans for the first time in my life....).
Besides ISN, I'm teaching economics to students between 13-16 years old. A tough job, but somebody has to do it! I live in Amsterdam for 5 years now and my favorite place is a boat on the canals. (maybe one of the reasons why i'm also working on a boat). I think my favorite travel destination is the same destination where I would love to study abroad and that is Curaçao. I have never been there, but I’ve been begging my parents to go there since I was like 10 years old (unfortunately they never took me there). I don't know when, but I will go there someday!
For now I just want to say, enjoy the rest of your time here in Amsterdam and I hope to see you on one of our trips/borrels or just somewhere around!
