Can you tell us a little bit about yourself – who are you, where do you come from and what are your hobbies?
Hello! I'm Hanna, member of AEGEE-Tartu. My field is theatre studies and my hobbies are mostly connected to experiencing culture in its different forms. Of course I also enjoy travelling a lot, how else!
How/why did you discover AEGEE?
During my first year in university I felt that something is missing and I started looking for an organization to join. I wasn't satisfied with just studying, I needed something to fill my days. Joining AEGEE was a bit random but at the same time a very right decision. After the info night I knew that I wanted to join and that my life is going to be different from now on. And it really has been.
Can you sketch your AEGEE-career for us? What was your ultimate highlight within your time in AEGEE?
I joined in March 2018 and started being active straight away. I went to a SU last year, agora in October and helped to organize Y vote conference in Tartu. Last December I was chosen to be the most active member on local level of my antenna, yay! During this spring I was also the subsidiary secretary (as our actual amazing secretary Karin was on her Europe on Track trip). Starting from this August I am going to be on the new board as, surprise-surprise, secretary! And I was also the main organizer of our summer university this year. It ended less than a week ago and we co-organized it with AEGEE-Eindhoven. Organizing this was probably also the highlight of my AEGEE experience this far. We visited 4 different countries and spent 2,5 weeks together with all the SU team.
Are there any specific plans or goals (within AEGEE) you strive towards?
For now I would just like to see what the future brings but I don't exclude anything. Everything is possible in AEGEE!
Do you have a message for the members of AEGEE-Leiden?
