Hi everyone! My name is Ruan and I am the External Relations Coordinator of the 36th Board of ESN Groningen. I was born in Groningen and have lived in the area my whole life. After volunteering as ESN Crew in the ESN Introduction Week, I decided to apply for the ESN Board and dedicate myself full-time to ESN Groningen. As I was born in this beautiful city, I want to welcome everyone and show you the charms of Groningen! In my position, I have the opportunity to be the professional face of ESN Groningen and explore potential partnerships and collaborations that could benefit all students in Groningen.
As the External Relations Coordinator, I am responsible for the contact with commercial partners and NGOs. This allows me to be the professional face of ESN Groningen and explore potential partnerships and collaborations with local but also national and international companies and organizations that could benefit the network. If an external party is interested in collaborating with ESN Groningen, I will plan an appointment and assess the possibilities of a successful partnership or event.
As this position is very flexible, I have a lot of freedom to pursue new ideas and extend the number of partnerships. Furthermore, I supervise two committees, namely the Culture Committee and the Party & Pub Quiz Committee. Lastly, I am responsible for all theme parties, weekly ESN Wednesdays and the parties in the Introduction Week organised by ESN Groningen.
