Our lovely ESN Team Oslo
Olav - President
Hei! Jeg heter Olav. I'm studying a master's degree in particle physics here at the University of Oslo. Spring semester 2017 I was on exchange in Utrecht (The Netherlands) and it was one of the greatest times of my life. This was much due ESN in The Netherlands for always having great trips/party's/events to go to. Connecting internationals and showing us a great exchange. Ever since I have been motivated to do the same for internationals at my home university. Previously I have been the Webmaster and Local Representantive here in ESN Oslo. I'm motivated and will do my best this semester.
Pierre - Vice President
Salut, je m'appelle Pierre. I am currently studying Economics for one semester as an Erasmus exchange student at the University of Oslo. Contrary to what you might think when you see my name or listen when I am speaking, I am not French but French-speaking Belgian, yeah yeah it is important to precise! Being for my sixth and last year at University, I already had the chance to take part in different student associations in Belgium that I enjoyed, and apparently, I did not get enough so I was really excited to join the ESN Oslo Team, and so quickly the board when I was proposed to. My objective for this semester is, of course, that everything works fine, and above all that all the members feel good in the association!
Oh and finally, a few words for the stalker who would read this description, do not be shy and come talking with me during one of our myriads of events (like at the next Language Cafe for example #ProductPlacement, each first Thursday each month!)
Anne - Local Representative
Hey ich heiße Anne & I'm the local representative for ESN Oslo! I want to represent interests and values of international students of ESN Oslo on different levels. It's about spreading and sharing our ideas on a local, national and international level!
Océane - Treasurer
Hey my name is Océane and I am the treasurer of ESN Oslo. I have been living in Oslo for a year and I am currently learning Norwegian, but my goal is to study medicine in Norway.
I became a member of ESN in January 2018. I learned about Esn during an association day and Davina (who sold me ESN) convinced me to come to one of the meeting. So I went to this meeting because I didn’t know anyone and I was quite lonely so I figured that it wouldn’t hurt to try. When I arrived in the meeting I immediatly felt this incredible atmosphere and energy and I wanted to be part of the group. ESN helped me to socialize and feel more confident about being outgoing. I have been helping out ever since and this semester I took the role of treasurer because I want to get more involved in this association I love.
Arianna - Event Manager
Ciao! Mi chiamo Arianna! I study Philosophy at the University of Pavia in Italy. I got to know ESN in Pavia and I wanted to look for the association during my exchange semester too. I went to the first meeting and immediatly loved the atmosphere, so I decided to join the group and challenge myself with the role of Event Manager!
Jana - Webmaster
Hallo, mein Name ist Jana. I'm studying Agricultural- and Resource Economics in my Masters Degree in Germany and for this semester I follow 3 courses of Behavioral Sciences at the Oslo Met. I don't have a lot of experience with websites but I am open for new challenges. The thought "You can be a work in progress and a piece of art at the same time" changed my life for the better.
Kasia - Public Relations Manager
Mam na imie Kasia. I'm from Poland. Currently I study media and communication at UiO. I'm full of positive energy exchange student whose favourite machine at the gym is vending machine. During my free time I like to draw and do some basic graphic design. Thanks to ESN I can share my hobby with others. I can develop my creativity by doing something I enjoy. My journey with ESN started in my hometown - Krakow. I took part in ESN's Mentor Program. Thanks to this I met people who changed my world, people who encouraged me to go on Erasmus and won't be afraid to take the risk. When I help others and see their smile, it give me a reason to work harder.
