You probably already know “hello” and “how are you”! In Dutch, we say “hallo’’ and ‘’Hoe gaat het?’’. My name is Bas! For the coming year, I fulfil the SocialErasmus position for ESN VU Amsterdam. I graduated from the Bachelor of Aviation Operations, and during my exchange in the UK, I met awesome people from all over the world. After coming back I kept being involved with ESN, meeting a lot of more great international students. For the coming year, I will organize the volunteering activities. Join us to the all the amazing events and drinks, and we are going to make the coming year a memorable one in the wonderful city of Amsterdam!
