About 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,

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. I have  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.

In the last few years this association has given me so much that I have to give back something and that’s why I became a member of the Network Commission of AEGEE-Europe. I believe that the locals are the the heart of the whole association and helping them is not only a moral duty, but the right way to bring AEGEE to the next level.
See you somewhere in Europe, I guess!Gab

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: 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?

IMG_20180824_175052_448About me: Hey there AEGEEans! 😃

I joined AEGEE-Valladolid in April of 2017 to travel around Europe but soon I discovered that there is much more than that and I became quite active after my first SU as participant. Since that moment, I try to attend -and sometimes organize- as many events as possible to continue learning and improving. I also became a subcommie of the Netcom and, recently, a board member (secretary) in AEGEE-Valladolid where I am also very active at the local level. I have lots of energy and enthusiasm apart from many ideas to help the network. We can make great things together! You will recognise me in events by my many Harry Potter accessories and my huge AEGEEan spirit!

About me: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world”
Mahatma Gandhi

This motto showed up in my mind almost 5 years ago and since this moment those few words create a direction of my life. Firstly, I was the main logistician of NWM, later President of AEGEE-Kraków and just after term of the office, I organised Spring Agora Kraków. After those few years, I thought I’ll retire… but once again I’ve heard in my head words spoken by Gandhi and I realised I can’t finish my AEGEE Career without sharing my knowledge and experience. And here I’m – a new member of Network Commission.

I’m Karolina, normal girl from Kraków who love travelling, being spontaneous and to take on new challenges.

About me: I’ve joined AEGEE in April 2017 which changed my life quite a bit for one reason or another.

My life got enriched with a few friendships, people who challenge me and who don’t give up on me. Since I joined I can’t stop myself from finding new challenges and projects for my life, I need to keep me busy 😉
I wanted to become a Network Commissioner to promote solution-oriented thinking and to make procedures in the work of Netcom more effective and since AEGEE is struggling with relevance as seen in the decreasing number of participants, I am in for making a change in the network, to promote the vision AEGEE provides and make the members of the locals work towards the AEGEE Mission.

About me:  Hello AEGEEans <3

I joined AEGEE in the spring of 2016. Initially the idea was to go travelling 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 protect 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 an opportunity to develop myself a lot.

Network Commission 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!
