Bogdan Hurjui - President

My name is Bogdan. I am master student in Financial Economics from Romania. My main hobbies are football, travelling, and fitness. 

This year I am extremely honored to be the President of EESA. My main tasks are overseeing formalities, representing EESA, coordination of the board and ensuring that the association runs smoothly.

Besides this, I am also supervising EESA’s social committee. The Social committee is the life of the party for the EESA family. We organise events that help bring EESA members closer, all while having loads of fun, from large parties with lit eastern vibes to themed social drinks.

Ksenia Galachowska - Vice President

Hi everyone! My name is Ksenia, I’m Polish and I just started my second year of MISOC. With great honour I am taking the role of EESA’s Vice President and Secretary this year. 

As a Vice President my main tasks revolve around being up-to-date with all EESA’s internal processes and represent the association to the outside world. I am also responsible for Human Resources and managing the database of our members.  

This year I’ll be supervising the cultural committee, which aims to bring a little bit of Eastern Europe to Rotterdam. We’ll be hosting pub quizzes, language cafes, workshops and more. If you want to organize fun events promoting the culture of diversity of Eastern European countries, this committee is the right choice for you!

Kaarin Aavik - Treasurer

My name is Kaarin, and I was born and raised in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. I am currently enrolled in my second IBEB year. Besides studying, I sing in a choir and am a yoga enthusiast.

This year I am honored to be the treasurer of EESA. My main tasks are overlooking all financial transactions of the association, preparing budgets for the ongoing work and advising the board on the financial strategy, which requires an eye for detail and realistic planning.

Moreover, I’ll be supervising the Educational Committee. This year, the committee will take a new direction of helping students make most of their studies, organising workshops and events to help students reach their academic potential. Yet, we are always open for new ideas, so don’t hesitate to contact me for any questions!

Silvia Paunescu - Marketing Officer

My name is Silvia, I’m from Romania and I’m doing my Master in Strategic Management after finishing IBEB. 
I’m honoured to be EESA’s Marketing Officer this year. 

My main responsibilities are promoting EESA’s events, creating promotional materials, banners, and my favourite part is being in charge of social media: Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn. 

I’m also chairing the marketing committee, which is all about promoting EESA’s events and creating content for social media. If you like to think outside the box, are creative and up for a challenge, my committee is definitely for you.

In my free time I binge-watch netflix series, hang out with friends, and watch true crime youtube series in a totally not creepy way.

Sara Kaczmarek - External Relations Officer

My name is Sara Kaczmarek, and I am originally from Warsaw, Poland. I’m 19 years old and currently in my 2nd year of IBEB. 

This year, I am honored to be the External Relations Officer. As EESA’s main contact person, my tasks are to take care of all the external communication, maintain & establish new partnerships and further develop the EESA network. Speaking Dutch fluently for sure helps me with all this:)

Besides that, I will be the chair of the Career Committee, that aims on supporting students to develop professionally, organizing events, such as: workshops and networking events in close collaboration with different companies. 

Aside from studying, working and being on the EESA board, I love traveling and exploring different cultures. My friends would describe me as a stand up comedian who’s fluent in sarcasm and a social butterfly who isn’t afraid of speaking her mind.
