Adiëlla Boot - President ESN Board 2017/2018

My name is Adiëlla Boot and I am the President of the board of ESN Groningen 2017/2018. I am 22 years old, born in the Netherlands and finished my bachelor International Relations and International Organisations at the RUG. During my studies I stayed half a year in Colombia for my study exchange and half a year in Panama for an internship at the embassy of the Netherlands. In my free time I like to travel, have drinks with friends, do sports, and watch good movies.

Why the ESN Board?

Since high school I am used to being in international environments, and I enjoy having friends from all over the world. There are several reasons why I have joined the ESN Board. Mainly because I would like to help out new arriving students, as I experienced myself how much the help of strangers in a different country make your time abroad unforgettable. I hope that by joining the ESN Board and organizing activities to everybody’s interest, I can indirectly add to the experience of all students in Groningen.
