My name is Szonja Szabó and I am the External Relations Coordinator of the Executive Board of ESN Groningen 2022/2023. I finished my Bachelor’s major in Media and Communication Science and minor in Film Theory and Science in Budapest and am now studying the Media Creation and Innovation Master’s at the RUG. For my exchange, I came to The Netherlands and since it was an amazing experience, I decided to stay here longer. Through ESN I have met so many nice people from all over the world and I have always liked the open and welcoming atmosphere at ESN. That is why I decided to work a year full-time for ESN Groningen, to contribute to this atmosphere in Groningen!
You can come up to me to talk about anything, ask any question or just for a nice chat. Hope to see you very soon at one of our events or theme parties!
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 Network 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.
