Jikke Overdijk – PR Coordinator ESN Groningen Board 2021/2022

Hi! My name is Jikke and I am the PR Coordinator of the Board of ESN Groningen 2021/2022. I am 24 years old and recently obtained my bachelors in Sportstudies. I really like  to work within the international community in Groningen, getting to know many new people from all over the world, and showing international students the best of the Groningen student life!

Position description

As the PR Coordinator, I am mainly responsible for how ESN is communicated towards the public. This includes ESN Groningen’s visibility and recognizability, and the promotion of our events and programs. This means that a lot of my tasks are carried out on social media and involve designing, although I have my amazing PR & Graphics committee to support me in this wherever necessary. Another big part of my position is the recruitment of new active members, including Introduction Guides, committee members, and of course new Board members.

My position allows me to get creative in choosing the way that ESN is promoted, and the channels that we use. At the same time, it is a very challenging position, as it is up to me to try to reach as many people in the Groningen student body as possible.

Finally, as the PR Coordinator, I am not only in charge of the PR & Graphics committee but also the Culture committee.
