2017-AEGEE-Board-8902About me: It was in autumn 2014 when I discovered AEGEE in the beautiful city of Passau. At first, I was hesitant, but this changed as soon as I got into some working groups, organising events for Erasmus students at my university. But this was just the beginning of a glorious relationship with this extraordinary association. I got active in the local board for several years until I made the move to go on my own Erasmus in Budapest which I am doing right now. However, this should not be the breakup, so I decided to take the next step: working for the best commission of AEGEE-Europe: The Network Commission. It is my passion get to know new people from around the world and bringing them together to create projects in AEGEE. I had the privilege to learn a lot during the last years which is why I want to serve the network in this way and pass on to the next generation what AEGEE gave me. For the second half of my NetCom term I am even more motivated to work together with the great team we have and hopefully achieve great results during summer to foster the Network development and help our locals. See you somewhere in Europe!

About me: Hi everyone! 😀
My name is Celia, from AEGEE-Zaragoza since 2013. My first contact with this association made me realise that I was going to be totally hooked, and since my first SU in 2013 I have been active, attending as many events as possible and helping as much as time has allowed time. After 3 years on the board of AEGEE-Zaragoza, one year as subcommissioner of the Network Commission and different collaborations with the GEIG and the LGBT+IG this year, I feel I’ve gathered the experience and the right motivation, I’m ready to assume the role of Network Commissioner. I really want to start working with the whole team to make our Network stronger and help the locals doing anything in our hands. To define myself in three words I would say: active, responsible and happy. I’m active because I’m a true hurricane of energy, you won’t ever see me bored. I’m looking for new and motivating projects to join that make my day full! I’m responsible because I don´t sleep to do what I´m supposed to do but I’m also a little crazy and creative. I’m happy because whatever happens I love enjoying every single minute or experience in my life. As any AEGEE member, travelling is my passion and meeting new people my fuel. You will have to meet me to get to know me better!

photo5803371286964055328About me: I have joined AEGEE all the way back in 2012, and had to go a long path to feel ready to take the step to join the Network Commission and help locals with my expertise and vision of the network! Awesome experience of founding and developing AEGEE-Sheffield gave me the understanding that any local can grow incredibly if given the right amount of support and encouragement. So that’s what I want to do in my term as a NetCommie, help antennae grow, motivate them to realise any crazy ideas they could have and show them what AEGEE can give. In my non-AEGEE life I’m finishing my Masters’ Degree in French Literature and still trying to figure out what to do next in life :)
Kind regards,

Oksana

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetAbout me: I joined AEGEE  3 years ago but I consider myself a member after my first NWM in Cluj Napoca in spring 2014. For me that was the moment when I realized what AEGEE means, what opportunities it can offer and what perspective I could have.  So far I’ve been involved for 2 years as a board member in my local and I’ve joined many other local and European projects , the most important for me, being  part of the Planning Team for Ideas Factory Leon 2016. Currently except AEGEE, I’m studying Cultural Management and Theatrology  in Sibiu. Besides that I’ve took part it more than 10 Erasmus+ TC and youth exchanges and I’m planning to continue to work in this field more and more, at some implementing the idea also in AEGEE. AEGEE for me is a legacy, starting from a Conference  and becoming now the biggest student interdisciplinary association in Europe, thanks to the contribution of thousands of students. It’s  not an easy thing to keep this working for so many years, maybe that’s why I decided to candidate as a Network Commissioner, to bring my contribution to this legacy and motivate others to be part of it.

About me: My AEGEE life started at late 2016, since then I was always lucky to have unbelievably bright and motivated people of this organization around me, The feeling of being family was always there, and I loved it.Ive been a board member for AEGEE-IZMIR and organized Network meeting, summer universities, thematic events, still organizing EPM.. and I was a content manager of EQAC but besides that AEGEE gave me my closest friends, best memories, experiences that I would never gain without AEGEE. So I am trying to pay it back and I want to help AEGEE with all I can do with my best, to make this organization more visible, successful and sustainable.

About me: I started my AEGEE life 2 years ago, when I went on Summer University in Krakow and Lviv.

Since then, I knew that AEGEE is perfect for me! The people, the atmosphere and the events are awesome. In the beginning of 2017, my board term started at my local and since then I only wanted to make a difference in our association.

As a NetCom I can finally do something for the whole Network instead of only the local level.

I am really looking forward to the coming year, let’s make it amazing together!

20180512_230441About me: About me/ Why I am here:
Writing down those sentences makes me wanna jump out of joy and happiness for the year ahead as a Network Commissioner. So I’m improvising and just try to make you feel my enthusiasm!!! AEGEE is the perfect playground for learning and experiencing in the most fascinating ways. It is exciting, unique, awesome as we all keep saying! You can get sad at one moment and wanna quit and then just after some moments you regret, because of the amazing people called AEGEEans. In my life, I’ve never had the chance to meet so many extraordinary, passionate and open-minded dreamers as I’ve met in our loving association. And that’s what made me join the Network Commission. The people of AEGEE. You brought me here and I’m ready to take care of you now. Network Commission, for me, is the link between the remote puzzles of AEGEE, like a mechanism that combines all the pieces, the ideas, the bodies, the flow of things, and can build bridges of collaboration and above all understanding. We are in AEGEE because we want to change ourselves and the world and both be the best version they can be. From organizing events, NWMs, RTCs, smaller or bigger ones, festivals, drinks, the launching of projects, even case studies or writing articles, pondering about the European youth, you, my beloved network, will be the protagonists of shaping AEGEE and eventually your future. And I will be on your side, holding your hand and guide you through. Who’s ready for the journey?

About me: Hello AEGEEans!

I’m Francesca, I’m 24yo and I’m from AEGEE-Cagliari. I joined AEGEE in 2014 and it was love at first sight! I started to be active at a local level right away,  I’ve been a board member for two years and then subcommissioner for the Netcom Gabriele. I’ve decided to become Network Commissioner because in these years I had the chance to grow up so fast and I’ve had a great time, so much that I thought I couldn’t stop just now. I’m here because I want to give back what I’ve been learning in AEGEE and to support locals, the heart of our organisation.

About me: I joined AEGEE in a cold autumn of 2013 and, as it usually happens, I started with going out for a beer (or a few beers) and casual conversation with some nice people that I met. Most of them were nice. Highly above the average. I liked it. And then it went fast: winter swimming, EPM preevent, SU, being a board assistant, being active even during my Erasmus year in Italy, being President of my local, joining internation projects and events, night swimming in a Baikal lake…. I loved every new experience that AEGEE gave me, and I developed skills that Universities do not usually teach. I learned that there is so much more to do than only study from books, and that the “learning by doing” is a smart approach to take. Now I am ready for my final AEGEE adventure: support the locals and help them to develop – not only in numbers that you can read in various reports, but also (or rather: most of all) to inspire their members to take the most of opportunities they are given, be active and influence the local communities. This is, in my opinion, what we are all about – young people making the change we want to see in the world. :)

About me:  Hello AEGEEans <3

I joined AEGEE in the spring of 2016. Initially the idea was to go traveling around Europe, meeting people and partying. Though that quickly changed and I fell in love with all the things our dear organization has to offer. I can honestly say AEGEE made me grow in so many ways, that I stand now a different person then I was before I joined. For this I will forever feel in debt to it and this is the reason why I now want to give back AEGEE, the locals and each of our members as much as I can, so we can continue growing together. Spending more time in AEGEE made me want to try more and more. So a partfrom participating in events I started joining Interest groups, I became a local board member, an ACTie, a SubCommie of NetCom and than finally I became a Network Commissioner. A position for which I feel extremely honored and grateful to be elected by the Network. I’m really looking forward to returning the trust given to me by working to improve our amazing locals, to serve and protected them, with full devotion.

IMG_1055About me:  Hey dear AEGEEans! My big love with AEGEE started 2 years ago and since then my life is full of AEGEE spirit.
AEGEE gave me opportunity to develop myself a lot. After my first SU I became addict to AEGEE and was a president of AEGEE-Sankt-Peterburg, member of Youth Development Working group, part of AEGEE-Academy, organized SUs, NWM, WU, LTCs and other local events and still every day I learn something new and meet amazing inspiring people.
Network Comission is a new challenge that I’m ready to accept because I want young people to know about AEGEE as soon as possible and for this aim it’s crucial to have strong locals, prospective networking and personal approach to all needs of members.
Let’s dream without borders!
