Hannah Jelkmann – President ESN Groningen Board 2021/2022

Hello Everyone! My name is Hannah Jelkmann. I am 20 years old and I am the President of the Board of ESN Groningen 2021/2022. I am in my third year of the Bachelor Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Groningen, and now I dedicate all my time and efforts into ESN Groningen.  Growing up in an international environment back in home town Berlin as well as having  lived in Brunei Darussalam for 4 years, I have grown to love and cherish international experiences. This is exactly why I wanted to be involved in ESN Groningen, as you cannot miss the international experience in this amazing organisation! I hope to meet you all at one of our events!

Position description

As the President of ESN Groningen, I have a coordinating and supervising role. I am mainly responsible for leading the executive board and the meetings within the board, maintaining an overview and be up to date with all the latest developments of ESN Groningen and ensuring the long-term perspective is taken into account. I also provide support within the board where necessary. Furthermore, I am the face of the organisation. This involves representing ESN Groningen towards different external stakeholders, for instance towards other student organisations, the Media, the University of Groningen, the Hanze University of Applied Sciences and the Municipality of Groningen, as well as on different national and international levels.
