Jeffrey van Sluis – President ESN Groningen Board 2022/2023

Hello Everyone!

My name is Jeffrey van Sluis. I am 24 years old and I am the president of the Board of ESN Groningen 2022/2023. I am in my Master’s in International Security, but this year I will dedicate all my time and effort to ESN. 

I am born and raised in the city of Groningen and completed my Bachelor’s degree in International Relations and International Organization at the RUG. In the years that I have been living in Groningen, I have gathered quite some knowledge and experience. Feel free to ask for recommendations or ask questions. I hope that Groningen can become a home to everyone like it is home to me and I will try my best to achieve this. 

I hope to see you at one of our wonderful events!
