Mirthe Koenderink – Integration Coordinator ESN Groningen Board 2019/2020

Hi guys! I am Mirthe Koenderink, and I am the Integration Coordinator of the Board of ESN Groningen 2019/2020. I am 22 years old, and born and raised in the beautiful region of Twente. I just finished my Bachelor’s in International Business and went to Taiwan for my exchange. Besides my love for cheese, I really enjoy getting to know people from different cultures, so just come up to me for a chat!

Function description

The position of Integration Coordinator is probably the one that is the vaguest to describe. However, this also means that there is room for new ideas and projects. The tasks of the Integration Coordinator are quite diverse; setting up meetings with external parties, supervising internal and external committees, organizing various activities, representing ESN in several platforms and promoting and executing your own projects. As Integration Coordinator, I am also involved in the event called Experience Groningen, which is organised in cooperation with the municipality of Groningen. Furthermore, I am responsible for the Culture day in both the Introduction Weeks. The ESN committees under your responsibility are the Buddy & Integration Committee and the International Dinner Committee. Furthermore, another important aspect of the position is ESN’s integration projects, such as the Intercambio Language Exchange Project and the Buddy Program, or coming up with new integration projects like the International Soccer Tournament with a Dutch association.
