Isabella Fijen– PR Coordinator ESN Board 2017/2018

My name is Isabella Fijen and I am the PR Coordinator of the ESN Groningen board of 2017/2018. I am 22 years old and last year I finished my bachelor in Sociology at the University of Groningen. I was born in Amsterdam, so moving to the small town of Groningen was a change. Still, right from the first moment I came to Groningen I felt at home. The amazing student life and many opportunities made me fall in love with this beautiful city.

Why the ESN board?

In my third year of my studies I went on exchange to Budapest, and it was there that I realized again how much I loved being abroad, discover new places and meet people from all over the world. Back in Groningen I knew I did not want to lose this international feeling and that is why I decided to apply for the ESN-board.

Function description

As the PR Coordinator of ESN Groningen you are responsible for a diverse range of tasks. Mainly, you will be responsible for the media channels such as the ESN Groningen Facebook page, Instagram, Snapchat and of course this website. This includes working together with the nine ESN committees to make sure that their events are properly promoted. It is up to you to figure out the best way to reach the target group. Furthermore, you will be in charge of taking pictures and videos during the ESN activities; however you will have plenty of help from the PR & Graphics committee too. In addition you will also try to create more awareness for the organisation and recognition for the ESN brand. This means you will aim for a higher response rate among international students and more interest from Dutch students to join the organisation actively. This gives you the freedom to think outside the box and come up with some creative solutions. Next to this you will work closely together with the graphic designer to help design all offline and online promotion, like posters, banners, flyers, maps etc. Lastly, you will supervise two amazing committees, namely the PR & Graphics Committee, and the Culture Committee!
