Nathalie Guillium

Wietske de Bruijn

Treasurer & Partnerships Coordinator

Hi! I’m Wietske and I studied corporate finance at the UvA. I did my exchange semester in Hoboken NJ and had the time of my life! That’s why I joined ESN after I came back, to stay within this international bubble. In my free time, I love to travel, eat cheese and meeting with friends to eat more food (and cheese).

Subu Choudhury

PR Coordinator

Hey! My name is Subu, im 21 years old and in my 3rd year of studying New Media and Digital cultures at the UvA. As an international student who came to Amsterdam 3 years ago, I love the community of exchange and International students that ESN creates, which is why Im now the PR coordinator for the Amsterdam Section. Besides all the creative hobbies under the sun, I enjoy travelling and eating, so if you, like me, have a list of google map restaurants, please DM me and lets set something up!

Diana Bonis

Activities Coordinator

My name is Diana Bonis, I’m 21 years old and I study Communication Science at the University of Amsterdam. I was born in Romania, in a relatively small mountain city. Among the things I enjoy doing are organizing events, traveling and trying everything that suddenly unravels.

Neelanti Paul

Integration Coordinator

Hey! I’m Nathalie and I studied international business and languages. I am originally from Germany but have lived abroad the past 7 years, in the US, Netherlands and Argentina! I love traveling, meeting my friends for coffee and exploring new places.

Dennis Appelboom

Introduction Coordinator

Hey everyone! I’m Dennis and I am 22 years old and I am currently in my last year of my study Business Administration at the University of Amsterdam! I was born in Haarlem, a cute and cozy city close to Amsterdam.

Unfortunately, my exchange got cancelled due to covid so I never got to experience my Erasmus, that’s why I am super motivated to make sure everyone enjoys their Erasmus in Amsterdam!

Emily Galfrascoli

Introduction Coordinator

I’m Emily Galfrascoli, 23, studied International Business Management at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. Originally from Argentina, with Italian roots, Erasmus in Barcelona and living in Amsterdam for 5 years. You can always find me dancing to Latin music, travelling the world, taking pictures with my Polaroid camera and eating anything that has Dulce de Leche (my favourite Argentinian sweet).
