Daimy Kraakman


Hiya! My name’s Daimy and I was a student in European studies and I’m now doing a Master’s in international law. I love music, reading, running in the woods and going to festivals. I’m in a rockband which is based in Manchester where I sing and play the guitar.

Kasia Myślińska

Vice-President & IT Coordinator

Hi! I’m Kasia and I’m a second year UvA Economics student. I’m doing a minor in European Politics and Global Change. I love photography, traveling, snowboarding and water sports. I’m always down for a thrift shopping session and a trip to the beach to watch the sunset.

Jasmina Matgepour

Treasurer & Partnerships Coordinator

Born in The Netherlands but grew up in the UK. In my last year of International Business in HvA, I always make time for a good afternoon tea! I’m this year’s treasurer so I’m in charge of finances of ESN and partnerships, approaching and maintaining partners, so our ESNcard has a lot of discounts for you all!

Jessica Qiu

Activities Coordinator

Hi! Second year PPLE student here, majoring in Law 🙂 Some of my interests include discovering new music, Game of Thrones, and yes, cycling! Let’s hope that this will still be the case even if winter is coming …

Dominique Weltevreden

Integration Coordinator

Hi! Apart from being the Integration Coordinator for ESN Amsterdam, I’m doing a Master’s in Computational Science after my Bachelor’s in Neuroscience 🙂 When I’m not studying or at an ESN event, you can find me in the climbing hall!

Baturalp Artar

Introduction Coordinator

Hello! I’m a BSc Economics and Business Economics final-year student at the UvA. I have been living in Amsterdam for more than three years and have been involved in multiple student organizations. Whenever I’m free, I love traveling and cooking dishes from the Turkish/ Mediterranean cuisine!

Noa Koster

Hi! I’m Noa and I’m in my final year of my study Psychology at the UvA. I’m a real Dutchie and I grew up in Haarlem, a lovely city close to Amsterdam. I love to dance, travel and hang out with my friends.
