I have joined ComCom in December 2015 - I have been an active member for a little less than two years before I became a Press Team Coordinator. I have enjoyed and have a habit to write since I was very young. Outside of the borders of formal education, my main focus was fiction - very, very long fiction. So, writing short and fact-driven articles for the ESNblog has been quite a challenge, one I’m still mastering!

I joined ComCom at the end of 2016, curious to meet more ESNers passionate about communication. I enjoy scribbling on paper ever since I was a kid and I am open to write about anything you’d like to read, but what makes my heart sing most is travelling. I joined ComCom in the winter of 2016 but my journey with writing started way earlier. My mum always tells a story about how determined I was as a child to learn how to write so I could put my words on paper. Now, I still enjoy writing my thoughts down, but I also love writing about many different subjects... From my thoughts, through stories and poems, to travel articles - words always were my friends. I joined ComCom in spring 2017 - after 3 years writing (and doing different things) in local level. However, I actually started writing way before that; still remember some short stories I wrote back in primary school. Now I work with articles and writers every day and I love writing about things I'm passionate about - ESN, volunteering and travelling.

My name is Guillaume, your friendly Franco-Scandinavian writer who joined the ESN Press team in November 2017. As writing goes, I like to write about pretty much anything that pops into my head, but I guess you could say my comfort zone is humor. I like to make people laugh in my daily social interactions and I guess that’s what you’ll find in some of my articles, but for the blog I’m trying to diversify my topics and challenge myself (just a bit - I still like to write after all).

Me and ComCom found each other in the summer 69. Or was it 2017? In any case, we matched! I enjoy writing about random stuff and it seems that sometimes people like to read it too. In ESNblog we often feature articles about travelling and living abroad, which suits me well as that's pretty much what i have been doing in the recent year. I also like advertising. And cheesecake, i like that a lot too. A music, arts and travelling enthusiast, Jovana has been a member of ComCom since December 2016. For her, writing is a passion, not a job. Her previous journalist experience include the fields of culture, entertainment, sports and now education. I joined the ESNblog team in Autumn 2016, after participating in the 3rd Communication Summit in Brussels - my first international ESN event. I've loved writing since I was a little girl, so being able to write texts for the ESNblog is a dream come true! The best part of my work here is diversity - there are always so many various topics to cover. Yet, my favorite ones are people’s personal stories, as you get the chance to meet the main characters of your stories in real life (via Skype) and share their experience with the whole Erasmus generation.

Originally coming from the Czech Repulic but with a wander heart opened to any adventure. Thus in 2016 I tried my luck and joined the most amazing ESN committee called Green Army. The idea came hand in hand with thought to establish my own travel blog. You guess it right that my favourite topic to write about is wandering around world but I also enjoy writing about ESN events and some other untraditional topics. My journey in ESN started in 2016, but I've been writing since I remember. In middle high school and high school I was sending my articles to the school's newspaper. Those were mostly literature reviews and even now it is my favourite topic to cover. My second passion to talk about, write about or just staring at are cats. If I see a nice cat, it will make my day. Sometimes I like to share psychology themed works. I joined ComCom's Press in November 2017 as a result of my growing interest in writing. I am very passionate about healthy lifestyle, so I mostly enjoy writing about topics connected with food and fitness, but also some self-development articles every once in a while. With my texts I hope to inspire people to take care about their mental and physical well-beeling. I have to admit that writing has always felt like a getaway for me, since there is nothing better than expressing your thoughts, ideas and feelings either on a piece of paper or online. That is why ComCom seemed to be the next natural step in my ESN life, and I could not be happier about actually joining the committee. I was a little bit afraid of knowing that so many people will be able to read my texts, but now it makes me feel proud. Personally, I love writing in a way which would make ESNers and Erasmus students feel nostalgic or make them want to study abroad. Creating that connection between the writer and the readers is what means the most to me.

Lack of motivation is a common issue all volunteers face. However, the situation doesn’t have to be so complicated since there are multiple ways to bring back the initial excitement and joy that made us fall in love with ESN.

Sometimes we travel because we feel pressured by our environment to explore certain places. But that’s not why we should travel - our trips shouldn’t be about countries, but about experiences instead.

I had no clue there was a possibility of doing an internship in another ESN section until I found myself among the ranks of one of the biggest and most active sections - ESN Lisboa.

‘Are you only going to Auckland, or further?’, I was asked by a couple while waiting for boarding. ‘Further? Where could I possibly go further?’ I asked, laughing. And this is how my farthest trip began.
