My name is Melodie Zöllner and I will be the PR Cöordinator in the board of ESN Utrecht for the year 2016-2017. Two years ago I went on Erasmus myself to the beautiful city of Lyon. As many that went on exchange will say, it was the best time of my life and I just didn't want it to stop. That's why I even prolonged my stay, but when the time had arrived to return to Utrecht to continue my studies, I knew I had to find something in Utrecht where I would feel the same warmth and openness that I felt during my time studying abroad. Simply after a bit of googling I found ESN Utrecht and immediately decided that I wanted to join this organization! In this way I became the President of the Journalism Committee last year and this year I will grow further in ESN Utrecht as a member of the board.
You have probably already seen me coming by your news feed a lot as I am responsable for all the social media this year. I will take care of the internal and external promotion of ESN Utrecht and this way I will also be the person inviting you to all our amazing events! Next to this I will be responsable for the PR Committee and "my baby" the Journalism Committee, and will help the Introduction Committee as a coördinating boardmember with all their promotional matters.
As a fulltime boardmember I will take a gap year from my bachelor in Intercultural Communication with French. I have always had a great interest in languages and cultures which, as you can see, reflects perfectly in my studies and my carreer within ESN. But my real passion is fashion. Not the design side (I wish I had the talent..) but the promotional side, as I wish to end up somewhere in the fashion branding industry. When I'm not working, studying or strolling past all the fashion blogs, you'll probably see me somewhere on the dancefloor, nipping a gin tonic (no student beers for me). Don't wake me up too early and you'll have a happy Melodie for the rest of the day!
I am sure it is going to be an amazing year, full of challenges and surprises that I can't wait to tackle! If you have any questions don't hesitate to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or simply contact any of our social media and I'll be there!
